How do I find my course reserves? Is my textbook on reserve?


Updated August, 2014

Course reserves can be found, in general, behind the library circulation desk.  To access these readings, the library staff need the: Call Number of the book or Item Number of the article. 

To find this information, head to the Beryl Ivey Library website and click the “Course Reserves” link.  Type in the name of your professor or your course code, and choose the appropriate section (if applicable).  Then you will see a list of the items on reserve for your course.

If the title of an item says “Print or View” the reserve is available electronically.  Just click the title to download the item.  If you are off campus, you may be asked to log in to retrieve your reserve.

For all other reserves, check the “Call number” column.  Before coming to the circulation desk, please have the call number (i.e.: QP141.S62c 2012) or the item number (i.e.: no. 19) ready so the library staff can retrieve your item quickly.
