Course Reserves Collection Has Moved

We’re excited to announce that the move of our new Course Reserve Collection is complete! The library’s Course Reserves (ARES) Collection has relocated and is changing the way it functions in the upcoming months.

What will this entail?

Users will be able to locate and retrieve course reserve items, including course textbooks, from the Course Reserves shelves on their own. Eventually they will also be able to check out their reserved materials at a self-checkout machine as well as check the items back in by returning them to new smart shelves. This new self-serve model was created to improve the availability and accessibility of the Course Reserves Collection, and to make the process simpler for our users. Until this process is up and running, users will still need to check out and check in their items by visiting Ask Us Desk staff. We’ll keep you up to date on when the switch to self-checkout of course reserve items will happen!

Updates will be shared on the library’s website, and the library’s social media accounts. You can find us on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.
