Materials are placed on Reserve by your course faculty and instructors, who determine whether the item is going to be a 2-hour Reserve or 24-hour Reserve item. All Reserve items must be requested and checked out at the Library Services Desk. You will need to know your professor's name or the course name and number to retrieve the Reserve items. 2-hour Reserve items may not be taken out of the Library, while 24-hour Reserve items may be taken outside the Library.

Library Fines

Students will be fined for materials not returned to the library within the specified time period. If the materials are not returned, the cost of the materials and a $15 service charge will be charged to your account. These additional charges will be removed from your bill if the materials are returned, but the fine must still be paid. You will be billed by the Office of the Bursar. Materials may be recalled for the use of another patron and must be returned promptly or a fine of $1.00 per day is charged.
