Policies and Information
We lend textbooks, DVDs, and CDs for most courses as part of our course reserve service. Most items can be borrowed for two hours from the reserve/circulation desk (2nd floor of the library). Electronic reserve materials (such as articles, book chapters we've scanned, etc.) are available online in our e-reserve system. Faculty and students can access e-reserves from anywhere on or off campus by logging in with the course password and their Baruch username and password.
At the reserve/circulation desk on the 2nd floor of the library. Give the staff there the course number and the title of the book.
No, all reserve items are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be requested in advance.
Yes, you can take them to class or outside of the library. Let our staff know that you want to take the book outside so you won’t set off the security sensors at the library exit.
Yes, you can renew the loan period once (i.e., extend it for longer), but only if there is no waiting list for the book.
Pages for each course in the e-reserve system are password protected because of copyright restrictions. Your instructor should give the password to students enrolled in the course at the beginning of the semester. If you need help with the course password, please call the reserve desk (646) 312-1660 for assistance.
Borrowers are responsible for the policies and fines associated with this service.
