How Physical Reserves Works for Students

  • Physical reserves are available at the Circulation Desk during hours the Library is open
  • There is a two hour loan period during the day for all reserves
  • Your CIIS ID card is held while you are using reserve items in the Library
  • Reserves may be borrowed within two hours of closing and checked out overnight (except for A/V materials and instructor copies). These items must be returned within two hours of opening the next day the Library is open. There is a $2.00 per day fine for late reserve items.
  • Reserve materials may not leave the Library, with the exception of overnight loans
