Using Course Reserves

End-of-Semester Procedures

  • Unless specified otherwise, reserve lists and items will automatically be withdrawn at the end of each semester. You will be contacted with relevant information and if personal copies are not picked up by the specified date, staff will assess whether or not they can be added into the permanent collection or given to the VCAA office to place into faculty mailboxes.
  • If courses are not taught consecutively, the Library will not hold onto personal copies (e.g. spring course not offered until next spring, etc.).
  • Library books will be returned to their respective library stacks.
