Looking up Course Reserves

Search for Course Reserve books in the University Library's catalog by limiting to the Course Reserve collection (as detailed above), or by searching on the Reserves tab.


  • Course Reserve items can be searched by the name of the course instructor (Last name, First Name), the course name, or the course number (ex.  MATH:149).


  • Reserve items may also be searched by book title, ISBN number, or library call number. Note: different versions of a textbook can have differing ISBN numbers, so is recommended to search in more than one way for a book.
