Reserves Locations

If the Course Readings List says the item is on reserve at one of our branches, you can find the item either in the Reserves Room at Mugar or behind the circulation desks of our other branch libraries. We encourage you to have a call number when you come in to check out an item. You can find the number in your Course Readings list.

To allow availability of the items to the most students possible, borrowing period for reserve items are 2-hours, 1 day, and 3 days, as designated by the professor. You will incur fines for returning items late.
