Course Reserves

Reserve items are located at the reserve/circulation desk in the library. Reserve items are typically for library use only, but some instructors place items on reserve for overnight checkout. To checkout reserve items you need a library card or ASCC card. If you don't have a library card, you can get one at no cost with a valid photo ID.

Note: Holds cannot be placed on course reserves. Students must come into the library to use these reserves.

You can search for reserve items by selecting the link at the top of the eLibrary (library catalog) search screen.

The reserve search interface allows you to search for reserve items by Instructor, Course Number, or Course Name. When searching by instructor, it is helpful to put the instructor's last name first. See example below.

After locating a reserve item be sure to check the holdings for the item to find out which library (San Luis Obispo or North County) the item is on reserve in.
