Course Reserve – What’s That?

Course Reserves screen shot

College and university libraries provide a service not found in other types of libraries – Course Reserve.  Many resources can be legally accessed from within Blackboard, but not everything can be placed online.  When that occurs, your professor uses the LLC’s Course Reserve service.

Students may search [RaiderSearch Catalog]  to see what is on Course Reserve by [Course Number] or [Instructor’s Name]. Kevin Lyons, Course Reserve Supervisor, says most reserve items are for use in-the-library-only, so they are readily available to all students.  Lyons reports that “Students really appreciate having textbooks, especially, on Course Reserve.”

Several academic departments, including Criminal Justice, English, and Business, have been diligent on placing at least one copy of each textbook onto Course Reserve.

A limited Course Reserve selection is also available at the Lakeshore’s Midtown Campus.
