Materials are housed in the library's reserve collection to improve access to high use items for a larger number of people. Reserve items can include resources from the library such as books and periodicals or an instructor's personal materials.
Locating Items on Reserve
Alleycat, the library's online catalog, can be used to find items being held on reserve for a specific instructor or course by clicking on the "Browse Reserves" link on the main Alleycat search page. Once an item is located in the catalog, take the instructor's name and the title to the Circulation Desk to check it out. Reserve materials at Allegheny Campus are housed in the Reserve area on the 2nd floor.
Faculty Placing Items on Reserve
Requests for materials placed on reserve can be made at the circulation desk. On Allegheny Campus, please take materials to the Reserve Desk on the second floor. Loan periods for these items are designated by the faculty member requesting the reserve.
