Electronic Reserves
is an enhanced library service, which provides online access to most articles and book chapters on reserves 24 hours a day / 7 days a week!

To locate reserve materials for your class, click on the back button to return to the Reserves page. When you get to the Reserves page, look up the reserve material using either the name of your course, or the professor's last name as shown in the examples above. If any reserve material is available in electronic format, you will see a link that says "Some of the reserve items for this class are online: CLICK HERE FOR ELECTRONIC RESERVE ITEMS".

IMPORTANT: In order to access any item on electronic reserves, the professor must first give you a unique password for that course. Remember to get the password from the professor before you leave the class.

Professors may place books, and other special materials assigned for specific courses on reserve in print format. Print reserve materials may be checked out for a limited time at the Loan Desk, Library North. When you want to check out this material, write down the call number of each item you need, and bring your list to the Loan Desk.
