Physical Reserves

Library-owned and instructors' personal print and media materials are listed in the library's online catalog. They can be searched multiple ways, including by title, instructor's name, course name, or course department. Physical reserve items may be borrowed at the Circulation desk with a valid photo ID. To ensure that reserve materials are readily available, only 2 reserve items may be checked out at one time. Reserve items must be returned to the Circulation desk. Fines are charged for overdue reserve items.

Electronic Reserves

Electronic reserves are full-text files that are available for students in their specific eLC classes. E-reserves are only available through eLC. With e-reserves, students can download and print reserve items from any campus computer or from their home. Passwords are assigned by the instructor, are unique for each course, and changed each semester. The instructor provides the password to the class. 

Electronic reserves are subject to Copyright and Fair Use rules.
