Course Reserves

Course Reserves refer to items which have been selected by faculty members to supplement courses. 

Physical Reserves:

These are physical items which are kept behind the CML service desk and can include library owned items or items belonging to faculty members.

  • Physical items can be searched for in the catalog by faculty member name or course title.
  • Check out periods for physical reserve items are 2 hours, 24 hours, 3 days, or 7days and are decided by faculty members.
  • To check out physical reserve items, please speak to a CML staff member.
  • Physical reserve items should be returned to a staff member at the CML service desk (please do not place reserve items in a library drop box).

Electronic Reserves:

These are electronic files which are found online and require a library account to access.

  • Electronic reserves can be searched for online by faculty member name or course title.
  • If you have any problems logging into the eletronic reserves system, please speak to a CML staff member or contact the Lied circulation desk.
