Course Reserves Overview

What are course reserves?

Course reserves are supplemental materials reserved by faculty for the use of students in a particular class.  The library uses a system known as E-Reserve to manage the course reserves service . Materials placed on reserve are available at the Library Circulation Desk located on the 5th floor of the One Main Building.  Course reserve materials are for in-library use only, and have loan periods ranging from 1-3 hours.  Course reserve material may also be available electronically; electronic reserve courses require course-level password authentication.  

Who can place materials on reserve?

The library's course reserves service is intended for UHD faculty.
