Reserves Collection

Accessing the Reserve Collection ( Reserves Collection Information)

The reserve collection contains items that have greater circulation restrictions than materials in the main library book stacks. Types of reserve materials include DVDs, videotapes, CD or tape audio-book materials, resources that are in high demand (e.g., test preparation manuals such as GRE study guides), and materials with multi-media components.

There are multiple methods of locating Reserve items, making searches simplified.

Permanent Reserve, Course Reserve, and Textbook Reserve materials can be searched by author, title, subject, and keyword in the UWF Library Catalog as one would any other item.

Textbook Course Reserves Program

Finding Course Reserves (Textbook Course Reserves Program)

In an effort to aid in student retention and assist with textbook affordability, the John C. Pace Library has purchased those textbooks faculty have listed as required for all 1000- through 4000-level courses offered in the Fall 2016 semester. Lab manuals, workbooks, and access codes are not included.

Textbooks may be checked out at the Circulation Desk. Please have your Nautilus card with you to check out materials. Textbooks may be checked out for 2 hours, with no renewals. You may check out 3 textbooks at a time. 

To locate Course Reserve and Textbook Reserve materials, patrons can search using Instructor's last name, the course name, and the course number.  You can search for reserve materials using the search box on the library's homepage or by using the full catalog interface.
