Course Reserves for Students

Reserve materials are listed on the library course reserves page and searchable by course name or instructor name.

Ask at the circulation desk to retrieve these materials. Patrons must have a Clarkson ID to borrow. Loan periods are determined by the faculty member placing the items on reserve. Because of high demand for reserve items loan periods differ from that of other library items. There may be use restrictions on course reserve items specified by the instructor.

A fine of 25 cents per quarter hour is charged for late returns.
