Fines for overdue Reserve materials are currently $2.00 per hour overdue.
If an instructor’s name or course number doesn’t appear in the Reserve course listings, it could be that the course materials haven't been delivered to Reserves yet.

Personal or departmental materials should be brought to the service desk where items will be placed on reserve.

Please be sure that the call numbers are complete and correct on your request form so we can retrieve the exact title and edition.
