Course Reserve

Course reserve collections include the basic literature required for particular courses. They have been compiled by the lecturers themselves.

In Primo Knowledge Portal you can search for the lecturer's name or the title of the course by using the tab 'Course Reading'. All items which are part of this course reserve will be displayed. 

Location: Course reserve can be found diagonally across from the information desk.

Items placed on course reserve are not for loan but are available for studying and scanning in the library. The course reserve is kept in place for the duration of the course (usually for one semester). After that reserves are cleared and itelms are shelved at their original location.
