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: Jessica Bower
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) along side normal circulating books. 24-hour or 3-day reserve items are noted by a band around the book's cover.
24-hour and 3-day books may be borrowed at any time of the day. To check out a reserves books you can use a self check out machine or ask library staff at any circulation service point. There are no renewals on reserves items. 24-hour books are due within 24 hours and 3-day books are due at by the time the library closes on the 3rd day.
Please see the Bass Library General Reserves Information page for more details.
