Course Reserves

gil-find logo


Course Reserves are materials such as books, films, textbooks, and other documents that the library has set aside at the request of faculty and course instructors. Course Reserves materials are located behind the library Help Desk and are arranged by Call Number. Materials may be checked out for two hours and cannot be taken out of the library.

Some students bring their syllabus to the Help Desk and ask for materials by title. Others ask for materials for their courses and may not know the title, which is not as helpful in finding the right item.

Students can look up materials on Course Reserves in GIL-Findthe library's online catalog. Searches can be done by:

  • the title of the item
  • the author
  • the instructor or faculty's name, or
  • the course (for example, ENGL 1102).

The link to the GIL-Find catalog is on the library's homepage.

Change the drop-down menu on the search window from GIL-Find to Course Reserves to begin the search.
