Instructors can place materials on reserve at the Help Desk for their students to use. These items can be materials from the library's collection, or from the instructor's personal collection (books, videos, textbooks, notes, etc.). Instructors can set the check-out period for reserve items (usually 3 hours if the item is to be used in the library).
If students need to make copies of a reserve item, they may use the library's copy machine (10 cents per page). If the item on reserve is a movie, students can watch the movie in the library's study room.
