Course Reserves

Reserves are held at the Sherman Fairchild Library (SFL).  There are two types: open and closed.  Open means they are out on the shelves, organized by course, and you can go get them yourself.  Closed means they are held behind the ciruclation counter, and you have to ask for them. The borrowing time for both is 3 hours.  Returning reserves on time is considered a part of the honor code.  The catalog will tell you the location of a reserve and its type.

Type the course name or number you want to find, then press Enter or click Go.  Note:  sometimes you have to type the number of the course right next to the name of the course, MUS100 as opposed to MUS 100.


Type as much or as little of the name or number as you wish. For example:

  • MUS 100
  • music appreciation
  • Zoology 201
  • comparative vertebrate anatomy
