Find Course Reserves
Your professor may have placed important materials on Course Reserve in the library. These may be found at the Circulation Desk on the main level of the library OR as an eBook.

We will process your request as soon as possible and contact you once the reserve list is set up. Please email
us at email@example.com with any comments or questions.

Please note that due to the volume of instruction requests we receive, we require two-weeks notice for requests.
The library offers one-on-one research consultations to help you with your library research. Whether you are just starting a project or nearing the end, friendly library staff is available to help you find the best resources.
