The Reserve Desk is open all hours that the Library is open. Hours may change during vacation periods, holidays, and intersession. Consult schedules posted in the Library for these changes.
Course Reserves are materials set aside by instructors for a specific course. This ensures that materials are available to all members of the class. Typically, items on reserve include books, copies of articles, exams, homework solutions, and other required readings. Some materials may also be available via the electronic reserve program.
Several UIC Library sites provide reserve collections; all undergraduate reserves are located in the Daley Library. Items have limited circulation periods which vary with the material and by site. Cataloged items that are on reserve are noted in UICCAT.
The Reserve Desk provides a variety of resources for Library users, such as closed reserve materials, group study rooms, wireless laptop computers, audiovisual materials, media stations, and popular newspapers, including the Chicago Defender, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
Resources available at the Reserve Desk:
The Reserve Reading Room houses open reserve items (those items with a slightly longer loan period), music scores, Exhibition and Museum catalogs, and the Loeb Classical Library Collection. Current issues of popular serial titles are kept in the Reserve Room to provide access without check-out. Titles requiring more controlled access are kept behind the Reserve Desk.
