Course Reserves

The Beryl Ivey Library places course materials on reserve at the request of faculty members.

Our course reserves are kept on our shelves behind the circulation desk in call number order – please make sure you have the call number when you come to ask for a reserve! You can look it up in the library catalogue  by course code (e.g. FOODNUTR 1030, Psychology 1000) or instructor’s  name (e.g. Foster, Alison).

Please note:

  • Reserve items have varying loan periods (2-Hour, 1-Day, 3-Day, 7-Day). 2-Hour loans  must stay in the library.
  • All reserve items are checked out on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Any overdue items result in a $2.00 fine, for each hour they are late.
  • Materials may only be renewed if no other students are waiting for them.

Overnight Reserve Policy

Students may borrow two hour reserves overnight, if they check out material two hours before close or less. Overnight reserves must be placed in the drop-box outside the library by the times noted below. If reserves are returned after the library is open, they should be given to a library staff person at the circulation desk. The table below is based on our regular hours from September – April.

Please note:

  • Overnight reserves are first-come first-serve; they cannot be put on hold for overnight checkout.
  • Reserves not returned by the due date time (i.e.8am the following morning) will accumulate fines of $2.00 per hour, per item.
  • The drop-box is not checked while the library is open. As a result, reserves returned to the drop-box while the library is open will accumulate fines at a rate of $2.00 per hour.
  • Abusers of this program will be restricted from borrowing reserves overnight; further restrictions of reserve borrowing privileges may also occur.
