Items on Reserve (Short-term Loans)

Reserve items are books and videos that either we have purchased or that instructors have put aside for student use. These items are kept at the circulation desk in the library and typically have a checkout period of one or three hours. To check out reserve items, bring the title or author of the book to a library staff member. Alternatively, we may need the teacher's full name and your course code. Two reserve items may be borrowed at a time. Because reserve items are in high demand, you cannot place holds on them.

Overnight Loans

Most books are available for an overnight loan, they will have a blue or purple sticker that says "Overnight Loan" on it.

Degree business, degree nursing, and degree psychology books are not eligible for overnight loan.

Overnight loans cannot be taken out as such until the hour before we close:

Fall 2022

  • Monday to Thursday after 8:00 PM

  • Monday to Friday before 9:00 AM

We are closed on Sundays and statutory holidays.

Placing Items on Reserve

Faculty may put material from the Library’s collection or their own material on reserve for use by their students. Reserve items may be used within the Library only or may circulate for a one or three hour loan (please check with your Campus Library).  Allow a minimum of four business days for processing.
