How can the library help me access materials for my classes?

Answer

The library is committed to helping you access your course materials for free. 

  • Each semester the library works to put one copy of the required texts in every course on reserve, typically by the second week of class. You can find out more about the books on reserve for your courses on the library’s website (search by course number or professor’s name). 
    • eBooks on reserve can be accessed by students as needed via the link in the course reserves page for your class. You can print out sections of ebooks if you prefer reading print. You can also find ebooks through the library catalog
    • Print books on reserve can be checked out for 2-hours at a time. Once your two hours are up, you are free to renew as long as no one else is waiting for the book. There are no late fees if you miss the return deadline. To check out a reserve book, ask for it by title at the Information Desk in the library’s Atrium. You can use the printers and scanner in the Atrium to copy or scan sections of books. 
  • You can request chapters of books, both those that we own and those we don’t, through the Request an Item form. We will send you an email when the item is ready for you to access. 

If you have questions about finding course materials through the library, you can contact us through email or chat. If the required text for a class is not on reserve, let us know.
