Your professors may decide to put some of the materials they want you to use on Course Reserve. This might be a book, article, video, musical recording, etc.  Reserve materials may be checked out for 2 hours (these may not leave the library), or 1, 3, or 7 days.

Public Libraries use the term Reserves for putting a item on hold for you. However, we use the term Reserves to indicate that it is  something an entire class is using and therefore, needs a shorter check-out period.

You need your Cardinal Card or Driver's License to check out any item which has been placed on Reserve, even if you are only planning on keeping it a short time.

If you have need an item from the reserve shelf, visit the circulation desk and ask them for help.


The hold shelf is behind the circulation desk. 
Any items which you request from Opal, OhioLINK, or through Inter-Library Loan (ILL) will be held on this shelf for 10 days.  You will be notified when the item(s) arrive and may pick them up at the circulation desk.
