Course Reserves

Course Reserves are materials that your instructor keeps at the CSB/SJU Libraries so that everyone in a class can have access. Reserves are available on a first come, first served basis; you can’t place a hold on a Reserve item and pick it up later. Reserves can be checked out for four hours at a time. There is a fine of $1.00 for every two hours that a Reserve item is overdue.
