Research Tip: Course Reserves

What are they? Where are they? 

Course Reserves are library materials that check out for two hours and can only be used within the library building. They are available at the Circulation Desk and you'll need your Monmouth College ID card to check out materials.

How can I find them? Does my professor have any course reserves?

You can find course reserves using the syllabus provided to you by your professors, or you can view the Searchable Course Reserves List in the Hewes Library Catalog. You can search by class, professor, or department.
