Did Your Professor Put Something “On Reserve” For Your Class? Wondering what that means?
At the request of a professor or an administrator, we will “reserve” particular items at the circulation desk. Reserve items have short borrowing periods (2, 4, or 24 hours, or 3 or 7 days), and high late fees ($1 per hour) to encourage their timely return. This allows a large number of patrons to borrow a single item within a brief period of time.

If your professor has put something on reserve, just ask about it at the circulation desk. We’ll need to know your professor’s name and the title of the item.

Note: If a reserve item leaves the circulation desk – even if you’re just taking it to the copier – it must be checked out to you. Reserve items follow the same user policies as other library items (see “Circulation Policies” and “Late Fees” for details). The only difference is that they have very short borrowing periods, and most reserves can’t leave the library.
