The semester begins next week and you'll want to know about the Library's Textbooks on Reserve program. The library has a number of textbooks available for limited loan (usually for 3 hrs. but you can use them for as long as you want while in the library). During the first week and a half of the semester, if we don't have a textbook that you need, you can request that the library purchase it. We place the books in Reserves, located by the Circulation Desk. Here's the dates you'll need to know: January 28 to February 6: Come to the Reference Desk and fill out a "Textbooks on Reserve Request" form. February 7: Requests are reviewed and purchases determined (we buy as many as we have funds for). February 7, 8 and 11: We process the textbooks. February 12: Books are available on Reserve shelving.
