Where do you keep the course reserves?

Course reserves are materials that an entire class is expected to use heavily for a semester or year. Course reserves may be books, journal articles, copies of past exams, or audiovisual materials. They may belong to the library or to the professor.

Reserve readings are available from the 2nd floor Circulation Window at the Scott Memorial Library. Video and software reserves, along with the necessary equipment for use, are available either at the Circulation Window, or at the Jefferson Alumni Hall Learning Resources Center (room M13A-East and M13B-West). Reserves may be checked out and used in the Library or LRC for 2 hours at a time. Materials on reserve are listed in the Library Catalog with the location "Circulation Desk - Course Reserves" or "Learning Resource Center - Jefferson Alumni Hall." Call the Circulation Window (215-503-6994) to check by course or instructor.

Some materials have been digitized and are available as direct links from your course's online pages in Pulse.
