Course Reserves are materials such as books, films, textbooks, and other documents that the library has set aside at the request of course instructors. These materials are usually required or recommended for specific courses.

Course Reserves materials must be requested at the library Help Desk, and may be checked out for two hours for use inside the library.

If you can't remember the title of the item you need, check your course syllabus or search Course Reserves in GIL-Findthe library's online catalog. 

In GIL-Find, change the drop-down menu on the search window from GIL-Find to Course Reserves.

Then, search by

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

A library staff member will retrieve the item from the Course Reserves located at the Help Desk. (Materials are arranged on the shelves by Call Number.)

Remember, most materials may be checked out for two hours, but may not leave the library.

GIL-Find is the library's online catalog, a tool to help you find books, journals, films, and other materials in the library's collection. Course Reserve materials are also in the catalog and can be searched by the title of the item, the author, the instructor's name, or the course number (for example, ENGL 1102).
