Print and Other Physical Course Materials

Physical Reserve is a collection of items set aside for classes with special lending privileges. Materials such as DVDs, textbooks, and supplemental materials are placed into this collection by instructors for their students.

To use an item on Physical Reserve, provide staff at the desk with the instructor's name and the title of the item. You need a valid student ID to check out reserve materials or any other library materials.
