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.
During Intensives, course reserve books circulate for use during class and are due by 5:30 the day they are checked out, or for use overnight and are due at 8:30 the next morning. If you check out a course reserve book during the day, you are required to share your copy of the book with others in the class, but you do not need to share your copy if you check the book out for use overnight. Outside of Intensives, course reserve books circulate for two weeks. This starts from the day the book is checked out, and includes the time to ship the book both ways.
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.
