What is the Reserve collection?
The aim of the Reserve collection is to allow large numbers of students to access high demand course readings. The collection contains printed books, electronic fulltext journal articles and chapters from books, CD-ROM's, photocopied articles, lecture notes, and other course related materials. Items are placed on Reserve either on the recommendation of a lecturer or because they are essential references on a course reading list. Reserve material can be located by searching for the author or title in the library catalogue .
Where is it?
The printed books and articles are in the Reserve collection located at the Loans/Information desk.
Is Reserve the same as Reference?
No. Reference is a separate section containing tools for finding information and facts (like dictionaries, indexes and encyclopedias).
If I reserve a book that is out on loan, is this where I collect it?
No. If you want a book that is on loan you need to put a hold on it. Holds should be collected from the Loans desk.
