Faculty, and sometimes Library staff, place materials "on reserve" if they are required reading for a whole class. Reserve materials can be library books,articles, math and science solutions or sample exams, and sometimes teachers' personal books. The full list of Course Reserves is available on the Library Catalogue.

Each teacher specifies whether an item can be borrowed on a 2-day loan or is for Library Use Only.

Reserve items are kept at the Loans Desk. A valid Champlain student card (with photo) is required to borrow reserve items.

Please note that your access to borrow reserves is restricted to your campus.
