Course Reserves - Q&A for Students

What is the reserve collection?
The Reserve Collection allows instructors to make course material available to all students in their classes. Materials that may be placed on reserve include books, articles, chapters, videos, class notes, study guides and other course material. Both library-owned and instructor-owned material may be placed on reserve.

How long can a reserve item be checked out for?
Most materials have a two-hour loan period, although some go out for longer. The loan period is set by the instructor.

Where are reserve items located?
The Reserve Collection is kept behind the Circulation Desk and is not available for browsing. Students must bring the appropriate call number to the Circulation Desk to retrieve the material.

Can reserve material be taken out of the library?
Reserve material with two-hour loans must remain in the library.  Reserve material with longer loan periods may be taken out of the library. 

How do overnight checkouts work?
If a "no overnight" note is on the record, there is no overnight checkout. Absent this note, reserve materials are permitted to be checked out within two hours of closing time and are due back the next day that the library opens, at opening time.  Please note that, due to demand, no overnight checkouts are permitted during the first two weeks and the last two weeks of the semester. Overnight materials must be returned to the Los Rios Library where they were checked out.
