Q. How do I get an item my professor put on reserves?
You can find course reserves by searching OneSearch and clicking the ‘Course Reserves’ tab at the top of the page. You may search by the professor’s last name or the course name. Once you locate the item, find the call number (after the RBR prefix for personal items) and make sure it is available. Take the call number to an SJSU Circulation Desk staff member on the 1st floor of the King Library (left half of the desk), and s/he will retrieve and check out the item for you.
Be aware that course reserves circulate for much shorter periods of time than other items - usually 2 hours - so pay attention to when the item needs to be returned.
