Course reserves refers to textbooks and other course materials that we keep behind the Checkout Desk so that students can use them for free. To see if we have your textbook, simply click on Borrow Technology & Textbooks on the Library & Learning Center website. 

The library will have your textbook and many other types of course-related materials if your instructor put them on reserve for your class. Because textbooks are published in new editions so often, the library can't afford to buy them. Instead your instructor will loan the library their personal copy of the textbook to place on reserve so that it's available to as many students as possible. In addition to textbooks, instructors place other types of materials on reserve like back tests, practice test questions, required readings, anatomy models, and more.

For questions about course materials on reserve please call East Campus: 209-575-6228 or West Campus: 209-575-6676.
