Course Reserves

The Physics Library provides a Course Reserves service for the Departments of Physics and Applied Physics. To identify and locate items on reserve, consult the Course Reserves Catalog, CourseWork, your class syllabus, or the Reserves Binder at the Physics Library circulation desk.

Borrowing Reserves

Present your valid ID to use reserve items. Most course reserves circulate for either two hours or one day. They may be used outside the Library. Renewals can be done only in person with the item(s). To ensure the prompt discharge of reserve materials from your record, please return these items by handing them to a staff member during Library open hours. DO NOT return reserve materials to the outside book drop unless the Library is closed.

Reserve Fines

Because ready and equal access to reserve materials is critical to the academic enterprise, stiff fines are assessed for tardy responses to items recalled for reserves and for reserve items kept beyond their loan period. Fines for hourly reserves accrue at the rate of $1.00 per hour to a maximum of $30.00. Courtesy overdue reminders are sent one day after the time due. A bill for replacement charges is sent three days after the due date. Daily reserves are billed at $1.50 per day to a maximum of $10.50. We need and appreciate your prompt action in helping to make reserve items available to your colleagues.

Placing Items on Reserve

Please provide adequate time to process lists. While some items may already be in the Library, others may need to be recalled or purchased. Before each quarter, a letter calling for reserve items is sent to faculty along with a list of items previously placed on reserve. To expedite requests, please amend old lists and provide complete bibliographic citations for new items before returning your list to the Physics Library. You may need to obtain copyright clearance for photocopies before we can place them on reserve for you.

Permanent Reserves

The Physics Library has approximately five hundred books on permanent reserve. Most of these are high-use titles. Loan periods are two hours, one day, seven days, fourteen days, and twenty-eight days. Permanent reserves are listed by author, title, and call number in the Reserves Binder at the circulation desk. Course reserve borrowing regulations and fines also apply to permanent reserves.
