Course reserves are materials a faculty member wants an entire class to have access to, but chooses not to make students purchase. An example would be a book where only a chapter or two are relevant. University Library has books as well as video and audio recordings on reserve. Check-out times vary between 3-hours and 1 week, with fines applying after the due date or time, so pay attention when you checkout the item.
First, choose "Professor" or "Course."
Second, type professor's name (e.g. Herren, Graley) or course name or catalog number (e.g. Bob Dylan or ENGL 384).
