Reserve Book Program

The goal of the Reserve Book program is to provide temporary student access to textbooks until it is feasible for students to purchase their own copy.

How the Reserve Book program is supported

Books are provided through the generous support of individual Faculty members.

Please use the Reserve Room Intake Form and bring copies to the Circulation Desk.

Steps to add a textbook(s) to the Reserve Book Program

  1. Check GoCat (Library Catalog) to see if the title/edition is held already, or not.
  2. If the title is not held, the Instructor will complete the Reserve Room Intake Form and bring copies to the Circulation Desk.
  3. The Library makes the item ready for library-use and provides access to students (only) at the Circulation desk.

The complete turnaround time for these steps, presuming that a copy of the book is available and can be supplied, is typically about 5 work days or less.
