Q: Some of the books I want are listed as being on “24-hour reserve” and “3-day reserve” at the Bass Library. What does that mean?
Answered by: Tanya Allen
Certain volumes in the Bass Library collection are placed on 24-hour or 3-day reserve by professors, lecturers, and teaching assistants who have included the materials on their respective syllabi. These materials are located in the open stacks (regular shelves) with normal loan (3-week) books. 
 
24-hour and 3-day books may be borrowed at any time of the day. (You can use Self Check Out to charge Reserve books but you may not renew Reserve books.) 24-hour books are due within 24 hours, as shown on the due slip placed in the back of the book. 3-day books are due at by the time the library closes on the 3rd day.
 
Only faculty and students may borrow reserve materials. 24-hour and 3-day materials are non-renewable, and must be returned to Bass. Reserve items can not be requested through Place Requests or renewed.
 
Please see the Bass Library General Reserves Information page for more details.
