Reserve materials are library items which have been separated from the Library’s General Collection to better serve high demand usage of limited course materials.  Although they can generally circulate out of the Library overnight, most materials have a  two-hour use limit.

To search available course reserves, go to Library Search and select the Course Reserves tab. In the search box under this tab, you can enter the course number, course name, or course instructor to find materials placed there by instructors for student use.

To check out a course reserve item, visit one of the Library Service Desks  located in the Biomedical Information Communication Center (BICC) building or Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB) during operating hours and let a staff member know which reserve item you need, giving them the title or the item's call number. When they check the item out to you, they will tell you the loan period and whether you may keep the item overnight.
