Spaces & Technology
Reserve a seat in our classroom using our online reservation system.
Textbooks that are part of our Course Reserves are available for checkout (for a 24-hour period) from the main desk in the library. Usage of print course reserves will be very limited in the fall semester, due to a mandated 96-hour quarantine between checkouts.
