The Reserve Desk at Circulation serves the University by providing a small, separate collection of books and materials for supplementary educational usage. Current faculty and staff may request that materials be placed on reserve for class use. Library owned materials may be placed “on reserve” in addition to personal faculty and staff copies of materials.

Faculty owned materials


Reserve items are located at the Main Desk on the First Floor in the University Library. Each professor determines the loan period for his/her items. A professor may place an item on Room Reserve (1, 2 or 3 hour limits), or the professor may choose to allow the item out of the library for 1, 3, 5 or 7 day checkouts. Room reserve, without a set hour limit, indicates that the item may be checked out until the library closes but must not be taken out of the building.

Reserve Fines
  • Overdue Fine: .25 cents per hour
  • Unauthorized Removal Fine: $ 10.00 per item
