The Reserve Collections (Course Reserves and Permanent Reserves) are located at the Circulation & Reserves Desk on the second floor of the Duderstadt Center. All Reserve materials are non-renewable.
The course reserve collection includes materials designated by instructors for limited borrowing periods ranging from 2 hours to 3 days. The course reserve collection varies every semester depending on current course and instructor requests. A list of the current course reserve materials is available by searching in Mirlyn Classic using the Course Reserve option, and is also in CTools if the "Library Materials" tool is added to your course site.

At most we will place one copy of a book on reserve per 50 students.
