Book, video, or CD reserves will be in the library

  • On the Course Reserves page, click Book or Audiovisual Reserves to see what your professor has on reserve in the library.
  • Search by the course number/name (i.e. Ed 423 OR Social Studies Methods) OR the instructor’s last name: (i.e. Carey)
  • Go to the library Service Desk and ask for the reserve by the course number: Bus 280, RS 459, etc.
  • Check out time varies from 2-hours to 1 week
