If your instructor has put an item on reserve, you can find it at the Checkout Desk on the 3rd floor. The item may be a textbook or video that the instructor wants the entire class to see or access.
Because an entire class of students might need to see the item, the check-out period is shorter than an item from the General Collection. Check-out lengths vary depending on the item but are usually around 2 hours.
To check to see if your class textbook is on Reserve, you can check by course (eg: ENG 1320) or by professor's last name.
Not ALL textbooks are on Reserve but sometimes the library has the book as part of the General Collection; search the Library Catalog.
If the Library does not have your textbooks for checkout, you'll need to check with the University Bookstore for purchase/rental options.
