BORROWING BOOKS AND DVDS IN COURSE RESERVES

WHAT ARE COURSE RESERVES?

Course Reserves are books and DVDs that faculty have requested to be on short loan status due to anticipated high circulation.

WHERE TO FIND COURSE RESERVES

Course Reserves are located behind the Circulation desk and may be checked out using your Quest ID. They are available only when the Circulation desk is staffed.

LOAN TIMES

Generally, loan times for reserves are as follows:

  • 2 hours for books
  • 4 hours for DVDs

Should you check out a 2-hour reserve book within the final two hours before Circulation closes, that book would be due the next day an hour after opening.

Holds cannot be placed on reserve items.
