Circulation & Access Services: Course Reserve Collection

This guide relates to the borrowing polices and library services offered by the Alma Jordan Library at the St. Augustine Campus of the University of the West Indies

Course Reserve Collection

Reserve items are materials (books, excerpts from books; copies of journal articles; periodicals, etc.) that have been placed in the Reserve Collection upon the request of Faculty.

The items may be owned by the Library or by the faculty member. Generally, these are high-use items with shorter circulation periods to accommodate the high demand.

To ensure an equitable circulation of Reserve items, there are strict loan periods and specified conditions of use: all materials in the Reserve Collection are colour coded to reflect the loan period.  

The coloured strip across the spine of each Reserve item identifies the conditions of use.
