Does your syllabus say "on reserve in the Library"? Do you know what that is?
The Reserves department supports the instructional needs of University faculty by providing greater access to limited resources like course packets, instructor's personal copies, copyrighted materials, books, etc. Most items on reserve must be used within the library on a 1-3 hour loan. You can make copies (where allowable by copyright) at the copy center or on library scanners.
Materials in the Reserves collection may be borrowed and returned at the Circulation Desk located to the left when entering the atrium of the Library. The Circulation Desk is staffed during all hours the library is open. You can also access some items on e-reserves. Let us know if you have questions: 615-904-8539.
