Reserve materials have been set aside by instructors for class use. These items are kept behind the Circulation Desk and have various checkout periods.  Students depend on the availability of reserve materials, therefore, the overdue fines for reserves are higher than other library materials.

There is a minimum 30 minute waiting period before renewing or checking out the same reserve item.  This policy is to assure that other students have access to the materials.
