Reserve Collections

Reserve collections are high-use materials that must be requested at the front desk and circulate for a short time.

Media Equipment

The library maintains a small collection of cameras and associated media equipment.  Most of this material is under the ownership of the College of Arts & Sciences and supports classes in photography and journalism.  Materials include DSLR cameras, lenses, lighting, mics, and camera supports.

Course Reserves

Items set aside for the use of a particular class.  These items often belong to the course instructor.


The library purchases a small percentage of the textbooks for classes during each semester.
