Library Services & Resources

Information about reserves, fines, ID cards, study rooms, and other library offerings.

"On Reserve"?

These items are part of the reserve collection, i.e. they're "on reserve." Who are they reserved for? You!

This library jargon just means that these items are on a shorter leash than regular library materials. Rather than taking them home for 2 weeks, most are available for 2 hours, in the library. (Exceptions are noted below!)

How to Borrow

  1. Go to the front (circulation) desk -- it's the big desk you see when walking in to B12.8.
  2. Ask for what you need.
  3. The staff will take it from there.
  4. Have your student ID card or driver's license ready.


There can multiple textbooks for a course!

Try to have an idea of your textbook's actual title, or at least what the cover looks like.


We have some -- not all! -- textbooks available for 2-hour, in-library check-out. 

Find out if we have your book by asking at the front desk (please know the title of your textbook, as not all classes use the same books) or searching the catalog. You can also browse and search the list below.
