About Course Reserves

Loan Periods

Checkout periods for course reserves are 3 hours, 1 day, or 2 days at the instructor’s discretion. Hourly circulating items can be checked out overnight if they are checked out within 3 hours of the library’s closing time, and will be due back 1 hour after opening.

Course reserves are first come, first serve, and cannot be recalled, held, or renewed. Patrons wishing to use the same material more than once in a day must wait 15 minutes between checkouts to allow other patrons access to the materials.
