Searching for Books and Media: Course Reserves

How do you find books and audiovisual media in the library?

Course Reserves

Materials may be placed onto Course Reserve by your instructor to ensure that the whole class will have access to the required readings. Ask for Course Reserve titles at the Circulation Desk. They're usually available for two hours and must be used in the library. A few items, however, are on reserve with unique loan periods set by the instructor.

TIP: A good first-day-of-school practice is to ask your instructor if items will be placed onto the library's Course Reserve. While students are expected to purchase and read all required textbooks, sometimes a professor places recommended (not required) titles onto Course Reserve.

To see what is on Course Reserve, select [RaiderSearch Catalog]. From the [More Searches] menu choose [Course Reserves] to search for your class, OR,  Course Instructor to search by your professor's name.
