Do You Know About Course Reserves?

The library is in full swing getting ready for the start of the fall semester.  As faculty finish wrapping up their own preparations, they are starting to set up their course reserves for the semester.  These are items that the instructor has deemed important for the entire class to have access to, and therefore have allowed the library to keep it to loan to students.  Faculty can choose to have their items available for 2 hours (in library use only), 24 hour overnight use, 2 day and a 7 day check out.

To see what items we currently have on reserve, simply search the course reserves in our catalog.  You can search by instructor, course number and course name.  Between now and the first week of classes our course reserve selection will be growing a lot.  If you don't find what you need today, check back as it gets closer to the start of class to see if they've been added.  You can also call the Circulation department at 254-968-9450 to ask or just stop by the library in person.

If we don't have the item that you're looking for, ask your professor if they have a copy that they're willing to place on reserve in the library.  It never hurts to ask!
