Physical Reserves


Books, photocopies of articles, videos, and other materials are available at the circulation desks at Bizzell and the branch libraries. Students must present an ID card in order to use these items. They may have a loan period of three hours or three days depending on the type of item and what the instructor has requested. Please visit the branch library pages for specific information about their physical reserve collections and fines.

Accessing Materials Placed on Physical Reserve

To locate items like books, videotapes, and photocopies that your instructor has placed on physical reserve, go to the Catalog on the library's website. From the advanced search interface, change the search scope to "Course Reserves". Here you can search for your readings by title, course name, course number, or instructor. The list of results will include the matching titles for your search along with corresponding call number, holding library, and current availability information.
