Textbooks and other course reserves allow students to use materials set aside by faculty to assist in coursework. This may include textbooks, reading material, practice exams, problem sets, etc. For questions on reserves, contact the Reserves Specialist at email@example.com.
Print Reserve materials are available only at the Circulation Desk. This includes books, videos, textbooks, and other copyrighted material. Reserve material showing an IIT Barcode must be charged to a specific account, and returned during the allotted loan period (usually 2 hours). Reserve materials cannot be renewed and must be returned directly to the Circulation Desk. There is a 15-minute waiting period before re-borrowing a returned reserve item.
It is not library policy, nor practice, to purchase circulating copies of textbooks for students. Some current textbooks have been placed on reserve.
