Faculty may place books or media, (DVDs/VHS) on reserve in the library for student access.  Items are generally checked out for 3 hours, but it is at the faculty member's discretion.  Some items may be placed on electronic reserve to allow students to view them online. Electronic reserve requests must be placed a minimum of two weeks prior to their initial use to guarantee availability when needed. Reserve materials are scheduled to be removed at the end of the semester, but may be extended at the instructor’s request.
