HIS 120: U.S. History to 1865, Dr. Matthew Clarcq: Find Course Reserves

Course Reserves

The Lewis Library provides a Course Reserves service to support instructional programs at NCCC. Faculty may place high demand class related materials on reserve with restricted loan periods. These materials may include:

  • Lewis Library books
  • Personal copy books
  • Lewis Library owned media materials such as VHS tapes, CDs and DVDs
  • Personal copy media materials such as VHS tapes, CDs and DVDs
  • Photocopies of documents such as articles, sample exams, readings, lecture notes, etc.

Ask for Reserve items at the Circulation/Reserves desk.

Circulating Reserve items

Course Reserves are shelved behind the Circulation Desk on the library's main floor. It is really helpful if you know the course number, eg. HIS120, and your instructor's name, Clarcq,  as there are often several instructors teaching the same course, each with different material that they want their students to read. You must have your NCCC student ID with you in order to charge out a reserve item. Your barcode is scanned alonside the barcode of the item. Most reserve items must be used in the library and go out for a period of 2 hours. They are able to be renewed if there is no one waiting for the item. In addition to books and articles, faculty often place media/ AV items on reserve.

There are a few reserve items that may circulate outside the library overnight, or for a period of 3 days. It is up to the discretion of the individual faculty member whether or not the reserve items may circulate, and for how long.
