Checkout periods for course reserves are three hours, one day, or two days at the instructor’s discretion. Hourly circulating items can be checked out overnight if they are checked out within three hours of the library’s closing time, and these will be due back when the library opens the following day.

Course reserves are first come, first serve, and can't be recalled or requested. If more copies of a title aren't available, patrons wishing to use the same material more than once in a day must wait 15 minutes between checkouts to allow access to others.
