Find Course Reserves

Find the material that your professor has placed on Reserve for your class. How Do I > Find Course Reserves

Step 1: Go to the Reserves search page. 

You can get to this page by typing "course reserves" (in quotation marks) in the home page search box. 



Step 2: Search by Instructor's name, Department or Course by clicking on the pull-down menu and scrolling to GW listings.

Reserves search screen

Step 3: Write down the call number of the item you want and take it to the Check Out Desk on the Entrance (2nd) floor. Staff will get the item for you.

Remember: Make sure to return the book to the Circulation Desk, either to the Reserves book drop or directly to the staff. Fines are $1.20 per hour! If you need to keep the book longer, you can check it out again, if nobody else needs it.


GW: GELMAN Reserves: Two Hours + Overnight  =  In-Library use only. Take item home overnight if checked out two hours before the Circulation/Reserve Desk closes. Overnight items must be returned before 9 am the following day.
