Most materials placed on Reserve are selected by faculty for special class use. Typically these may be checked out for use within the library for only two hours at a time. Because these items are under heavy demand during a brief period, the intent is to make tham as available as possible to all students for whom they are assigned.

Some items may circulate but do so on a very limited basis, from 2 hours to 1 week. Some reserves are available online as e-items. Access to e-items is password protected. Passwords are distributed by Faculty, not library staff.

Assigned readings on Reserve are available to all library users.

Non-university borrowers are restricted to using materials within the library.
