We have at least one copy of every published book on the Ministerial Fellowship Committee reading list. These books are available to every patron with circulation privileges. If an MFC book is on course reserve, it is only accessible to students registered for that class and it circulates according to the course reserve policy.
Each term, we put at least one copy of every required and recommended textbook on reserve. Books are put on course reserve so that students are able to access the books they need for their classes without purchasing them. These items are kept behind the circulation desk and only available to students registered for that class. In some cases, we have multiple copies of these books, and there are copies available in the general circulating collection as well in the reserves.
Prior to Intensives, course reserve books circulate for three weeks. This starts from the day the book is checked out, and includes the time to ship the book both ways. During Intensives, course reserve books circulate for one week and are subject to recall.
In general, books on course reserve cannot be renewed. This helps keep the books available to other users.
You can have up to 3 course reserve books checked out at one time. This is so that books remain accessible to as many people as possible.
