Both traditional and online course reserves are available from the Library.
Contact us to learn more, or explore the information below.
Traditional reserves are available at the circulation desk. Please locate the reserve items you need in the "Faculty Reserves" notebooks at the desk. Library staff will assist you with the retrieval of these materials. A USJ student identification card is necessary to use reserve material.
Some reserve items must be used in the building. Others are assigned to the following categories by faculty:
Students may borrow one circulating reserve item to remove from the Library. There is a minimum $2.00 fine for removing reserve items without authorization. Please note that using a reserve is not always a confidential circulation transaction.
Electronic reserves are an easy, efficient way to use the Library's reserve system. We can scan printed materials, including book chapters or articles, as well as post items that are already in a PDF and make them accessible to students either on or off campus.
Contact Elizabeth Lesso, access services coordinator by email or phone at 860.231.5586 if you are interested in electronic reserves.
