HIS 120: U.S. History to 1865, Dr. Matthew Clarcq: Books

Lewis Library's Reserve Collection

Reserve materials are those items that an instructor sets aside specifically for one class. They can be checked out for up to 2 hours and  must be used in the library. Dr. Clarcq has selected several books from our collection that will be useful for this assignment. To see which books are on reserve, search Course Reserves in our online catalog. Or, go to the Circulation/Reserves desk on the 2nd (main) floor of the Library and ask to see what's on reserve for Dr. Clarcq's HIS 120 class.
