This is your guide to course reserves at the various campuses -- the circulation rules and the types of items we have available for you.
What are course reserves?
Library Course Reserves broaden the scope of your courses by allowing faculty to designate materials that are part of the course requirements and need to be accessible to multiple users. Materials on reserve may include:
- Copies of your required textbooks
- Extra credit assignments
- Practice exams
- Supplemental reading (articles, book chapters, etc.)
Because of their high demand, these items have shorter checkout periods and higher fines.
At all three Palmer Campuses, most reserves are assigned a two hour checkout and are assessed $1 per hour per item if overdue.
Other Items on Reserve
In addition to the specific items your faculty place on reserve for your courses, the library also has all of the following items on reserve:
- real human bones
- plastic bones & models
- required textbooks
- technique equipment, specifically nervoscopes, reflex hammers, and inclinometers that may be used outside the library. (Check your local campus for availability.)
