Loan and Reserves Desk

See Loan and Fee Policies for information on borrowing periods and fees for late materials.

The Loan Desk sends circulation notices to your campus Network/E-mail Account by e-mail. These notices let you know when you have overdues and when holds and interlibrary loan requests you have made are ready to pick up.

Students may look up materials professors have placed on reserve by course name and number or professor name using the Reserves Page of the Library Catalog. Professors may place books, articles, readings and special materials assigned for specific courses on reserve. Reserve materials may be checked out only for a limited time. Inquire at the Loan Desk.
