An instructor has put a book on reserve. How do I check it out, and how long can I keep it?

You may request a reserves item at the circulation desk. The system for returning regular reserves items works as follows:


Before 3:00 p.m. Mon – Thurs: Can keep for two hours only.

After 3:00 p.m. Mon – Wed: Can keep overnight—but must return by 11:00 a.m. the following day.

After 3:00 p.m. on Thurs (and all weekend hours): Return by Tues at 11 a.m.

NOTE: Last available copies of a reserves item cannot be kept overnight.
