No Reserves for Spring 2021

The Robert L. Carothers Library will not provide Reserves service for Spring 2021.

The Reserves order form for Kingston has been removed from the Reserves Page.

Please contact your Subject Liaison with any inquiries regarding e-books.

Providence (The CEPS Library) will offer only very limited reserves.

We shall review the situation for Summer 2021.

This purpose of this guide is to

  • Provide eligible borrowers with information regarding Reserves policies & procedures.
  • Provide faculty with the procedures for submitting items for Reserves.

How to Find Materials on Reserve

Items on reserve are listed in the Library catalog.

Items listed in the catalog can be searched by course name or number or by instructor.
