Q. What are Course Reserves?

Q. How do I check out an item on reserve?
A. Some reserves can be accessed online using a password given to you by your instructor.  Physical items can be checked out from the library using your EKU ID or current photo ID.

Q. How long can I have an item that is on reserve?
A. Books, videos and other physical items are placed on reserve for short periods of time, from two hours to a few days.  Some materials must be used only in the library.
