Textbooks on Reserve
New E-Textbooks Available
Biology: Campbell Biology (11th Edition) [One Print Copy at Reserves Desk, plus 2 older editions]
The library purchases a limited number of textbooks for its “Textbooks on Reserve” service, and it encourages you to participate by placing a personal copy of your textbook on reserve at the Circulation Desk for one or two semesters. At the end of the semester(s), your textbook will be returned to you. For more information, contact library circulation at X1461 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking for an alternative to a traditional textbook? Library faculty are willing to assist you in identifying no-cost open educational resources to support your courses. You can speak to Aaron Dobbs, library department chair and scholarly communications librarian, at X1018 or email@example.com for more information.
How soon do I have to return Reserve materials?
Reserves items may be borrowed one item at a time. Reserves are first-come, first-served; we are unable to hold Reserves items for later pickup and cannot renew these items.
1. Three-hour loans
Only one item is loaned to an individual at a time
Item due at the Reserves Desk three (3) hours after check out
Items charged out less than 1 hour before building closing time will be due within two hours of the next opening time
(becomes an overnight loan).
2. One-day loans
Items due back to Reserves Desk before closing time the day after check out
3. Three-days loan
Items due back to Reserves Desk before closing time three (3) days after check out
4. Seven-days loan (Graduate Courses Only)
Items due back to Reserves Desk before closing time seven (7) days after check out
Overdue Fines on Reserve Materials
Three-hour reserve (overnight loans): $1.00 per hour to a maximum of $100.00.
One, three, and seven-day reserve: $5.00 per day to a maximum of $100.00.
All fines are due and payable when the overdue item is returned. Payment by check, money order, or cash will be accepted. When a reserve item is overdue or reserve fines are charged against your record, you are blocked from further library transactions and a library hold is placed on your student record.
Note: All reserve transactions require presentation of a valid Shippensburg University I.D.
