Assigned readings and other materials for a class are put on reserve in the library so that all students have access to the material. These "course reserves" include books (including some textbooks), photocopied material, class notes, videos, CDs, etc. To access course reserves, you need a valid BlueNet ID and password. In non-pandemic times, these physical materials are available in the library for short term loans ranging from 2 hours to 7 days (overdue reserves are fined at $.50 per hour or day). Materials on reserve are searched in CentralSearch's Course Reserves scope.
During the pandemic, the library is providing touch-free virtual services, including the electronic delivery of course reserves materials. Please use this form to request a copy of a chapter from a textbook in our physical course reserves collection. This material will be scanned & delivered to you via email.
Some reserves are also available in digital format. Review the "How to find digital course reserves" for more information.
