Required Reading for Exploration & Discovery

Many of your required texts are available for a 3-hour loan at the library service desk. You may look up your section on the Course Reserves page of the library website. When you approach the desk, be prepared to give the title of the book as well as your course and the instructor's name. You'll need your ID card in order to check out the item.

Items that are not available on reserve may still be available at a library in the large consortium we belong to. If you can find them in Primo, the library catalog, you can order them to be delivered to Watzek Library for a six-week loan (no renewals).
