Course Reserve Information

What are course reserves?

Reserves are course-related materials made available, either electronically or physically, through the Legal Research Center.

How do I find course reserves?

Search by course number or instructor on the library catalog Course Reserves.  Course reserve materials are located in the Reserve room.

How do I check out course reserves?

Present your current USD Torero ID card at the circulation desk in order to check out materials for use outside the reserve room.

How long may I keep a course reserve item?

The majority of course reserve materials are checked out for 3 hours. Some reserve materials may be checked out for 24 hours. We will always tell you exactly what time your item is due.  If you forget, you may check your library account online.

What are the late fees for course reserves?

As soon as a reserve item is overdue, a $5.00 late fee is assessed. Thereafter, fines increase at a rate of $5.00 per hour.  This policy is also posted in the Library Policies.
