What does "on reserve" mean?


"On reserve" is when a professor creates a collection of materials that are "reserved"--excluded or from general circulation--to support a specific class. Instructors often put their personally-owned items on reserve as well as library-owned materials. The instructor chooses what short-term loan is appropriate--as short as four hours or as long as a week. Reserves optimizes sharing among class members since no one borrows the course materials for a standard six-week loan.
