Professors may choose to place high demand items, such as required readings, at the Circulation and Course Reserves Desk on the first floor of the Library.
Items in Reserves circulate for a limited time, usually three hours. Some items circulate for one day. Call numbers for books held at the Reserves/Circulation Desk on the first floor of can be found through the library catalog and the instructor's Blackboard course page.
Why reserves? Faculty place items in Reserves so that all students will have an opportunity to review the readings. AU Library purchases popular textbooks that students can share. The library started this project in 2009 to place one copy of every required General Education (GenEd) text for the fall and spring semesters on reserve. Free scanners are provided for student use.
