How do I find course reserves?

Course reserves refer to textbooks and other materials placed on reserve at the library by a professor for a particular class. Students with a valid CUNY ID may borrow reserve items to use inside the library for a two-hour period. Reserve items are non-circulating, which means they cannot be taken out of the library. To borrow a reserve item, bring the call number of the item to the Circulation Desk. To find the call number of a reserve item, use our course reserves search:



If the Library does not currently have your textbook in our collection, you may request that we purchase it and place it in the Reserves Collection using the following form. (Required fields are marked with a red asterisk.)
