Accessing Reserves Print Material

The Reserves Collection in the Robert L. Carothers Library & Learning Commons, Kingston, contains material designated by University faculty as high-use or required readings for specific courses. Items on Reserve for a course may include books, articles from periodicals, or special items loaned by faculty. A number of high-use items unrelated to specific courses are also located on Reserve.

To access print materials on Reserve, use the Course Reserves link on the University Libraries home page:

Library Home Page > Course Reserves
Libraries' Home Page


In the search box, type your course code or course name (for example, LSC 547 or Information Storage and Retrieval).

Course Name Entry Screen.


You will see a screen that lists the materials on Reserve for your course.

List of Reserve Material for HIS 80.
List of Reserve Material for LSC 547.

To check out the item you need, write down the title (for example, Information Storage and Retrieval) and the item’s call number (for example QA76.9 D3 K657 1997 or  LSC 547 Personal). Give this information along with your library card (your URI ID) or your Special Borrower’s Card to the staff at the Reserve Desk.

If you have any questions on how to access Reserve materials, please contact the Reserve Desk at (401) 874-5855.
