What Are Course Reserves?

Course Reserves are a collection of books specially selected by instructors that check out for a different loan period than the regular collection. If you are in need of a vital textbook or other supplemental material checkout out the Course Reserve collection behind the circulation desk of the Bierce and Science libraries.

  • Course Reserves provide a way for students to access textbooks that might otherwise be too expensive for them. 
  • Course Reserves may check out for only a few hours.
  • Course Reserves includes collections of online documents selected by professors specifically for the course.
