Library Services: Course Reserves

Reserve Item Checkout Policies

The LBCC Library's Reserves collection exists to assist students who may be in need of a short-term loan of a class book or textbook. While the collection has many textbooks, it does not have all books used in all LBCC courses. The Library encourages students to use the collection to aid them when waiting for financial aid or for their textbooks to arrive in the bookstore; it is generally not a good practice to rely upon the collection for an entire term as a particular reserve book might have to be shared amongst 20-60 students.

Reserve items generally check out for either 2 hours or 3 days.

  • 2 hour items must remain in the library. There are two photocopiers located by the Jimi Hendrix poster close to the Library stairwell.
  • 3 day items must be returned by 6:00 pm on the due date indicated on your receipt.

What if the Library doesn't have a book I need for a class?

  1. Ask your instructor to see if a copy of the item may be placed in the Library's Reserves collection.
  2. Ask the Librarian to see what other avenues might exist for obtaining items.

Course Reserves

LBCC faculty may place items on reserve by bringing them to the library and filling out a form for the reserve items.

If you wish to fill out the forms in advance, you can print the attached form, complete and sign it, then bring the form along with your reserve items to the library.

Please do not submit materials borrowed from other libraries for reserve at the LBCC Library.
