Replacement fees may be assigned in the event that materials are lost or not returned after extended periods of time.

Course Reserves

Faculty may borrow their own Course Reserves materials for any duration of time during the semester.

Staff and faculty who wish to borrow other faculty's Course Reserves materials are asked to limit their time to 2- or 24-hours as defined by the faculty who placed them on Reserves.
