Course Reserves

Click here to see whether books are currently on reserve for your class or instructor.

When requesting reserve materials, please ask for books by author or editor name. Books on reserve may be used in the Library for no longer than 2 hours. Some reserve books may be charged out for overnight use 1 hour before the Library closes in the evening and are due 1 hour after the Library is next scheduled to open.

The reserve collection includes books placed on course reserve each semester as well as those materials on general reserve, and it is located behind the counter (Map A-5). Only faculty members may browse the reserve collection. A list of books on reserve is kept in the reserve binder, which resides on the circulation desk. Titles are organized by course number.

Course Books

The Mathematics Library attempts to keep texts for all 300 and 400 level courses on reserve. Copies of texts for 100 and 200 level courses are not kept on reserve unless the Mathematics Department makes a copy available to the Mathematics Library. At least 2 weeks before the start of each new semester, faculty members receive a request for a list of course reserves for the upcoming semester. Prompt attention to this request results in the books being on reserve when instruction starts. Requests are filled in order of receipt.

Reserve Materials Available at Grainger Engineering Library

In order to improve patron access to mathematics reserve materials, an extra copy, if it is available, of each course reserve book is also on reserve at Grainger Engineering Library. Grainger is open 24 hours per day from 10:00 AM on Sunday to 10:00 PM on Friday, and 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Saturday.

Course Exams

Copies of final examinations from previous semesters are available, on request, at the circulation desk. They are filed by course number (Map A-6) and are available for room use only. They may be photocopied in the Mathematics Library (Map A-14), provided the staples are not removed. Copies of previous Mathematics Department's actuarial and comprehensive examinations are available for room use only.
