Reserve books can only be used in the library, with a few exceptions.  To get a reserve book, ask a library staff at the circulation desk for the book that you need.  You will need a valid student ID card with a library barcode to check the book out.  If you are not sure what book you need, you can search the library catalog.

1. Go to and click on the "BOOKS" link.

2. In the library's catalog, click on the "SEARCH " tab.

3. Search for book by "COURSE RESERVES".
