Features of the Reserves Collection
The reserve collection contains items that have greater circulation restrictions than materials in the main library book stacks. Types of reserve materials include DVDs, videotapes, CD or tape audio-book materials, resources that are in high demand (e.g., test preparation manuals such as GRE study guides), and materials with multi-media components.
In addition, materials assigned by faculty for specific class use are placed in the Course Reserves collection. Course Reserves materials include print and online articles, instructor-owned and library copies of books, video and audio works, and streaming video selections requested by instructors.
In an effort to aid in student retention and assist with textbook affordability, the Library has purchased required textbooks for all 1000- through 4000-level courses (lab manuals are not included). Students may check out up to 3 textbook reserves at a time for 2 hours with their Nautilus cards. More information about Textbook Reserves can be found on our LibGuide page.
Reserves materials are located in the Circulation Department on the 1st floor of the library. The Circulation/Reserves staff provides assistance to patrons seeking access to reserves materials.
