Reserve FAQ

Q. What are reserves?

Library staff maintain a reserve/short term loan collection at the customer service desk in each of our main libraries.  Faculty are encouraged to add physical resources (books, videos, etc) relevant to their courses to the reserve collection.  An ereserve option is also available.

  • Reserve items have specific loan periods and sign out restrictions
  • Placing important items on reserve greatly improves access to resources for a large number of students, and helps your students to locate critical materials.

 

Q. What kind of reserve materials does the library accept?

Materials we accept are: library or personal books, textbooks, photocopies of articles/chapters that comply with copyright laws, dvds/videos or cds, study guides, workbooks, study aids, kits/models.

 

Q. How long does the library maintain my reserves?

The time frame for reserve items may be a semester, or any other timeframe within a semester. Permanent reserves are not accepted and all items will be reviewed and removed at expiry date or the semester's end.

 

Q. How long a loan period should a reserve item have?

Standard loan periods for the reserve collection are: 2 hours, "in library use only", overnight and 3 day.

 

Q. What is your reserve collection policy?

We recommend that you take a few minutes to review our complete reserve collection policy.
