Course Reserves

Services | Course Reserves


In academic libraries, materials which have been given a shorter loan period for a limited period of time (usually one term or semester) are placed on what is called Course Reserves. This ensures that all the students enrolled in particular course have an opportunity to use them.

The Library’s Course Reserves collection provides highly requested items for courses offered during term. These materials are circulated for 2 hours, 1 day or 3 days. Course Reserves may include:

  • books;
  • lecture notes;
  • journal articles;
  • other relevant information to support student course projects and learning.

Find & Retrieve

All materials placed on Course Reserves are available for check-out for a limited loan period. They can be requested at the Library’s front desk. You can also browse the Library List of Course Reserve Materials or Search for Specific Course Reserves materials for a particular course via the Online Reserve Search.

To search for course reserve materials listed in the library catalogue, please search using the course number followed by STMU.

All course reserve materials are located behind the Library Information Desk. Please request course reserve items by the course Call Number.
