Textbooks and Course Reserves

Reserves is a service to provide textbooks and other course related materials to students. Textbooks are provided to us through a grant from the SBCC Bookstore and through faculty donations. Due to funding and space limitations, not all course textbooks will be available at Reserves.

In most cases reserve materials are limited to a 3-hour checkout. Materials may be renewed if no other student is waiting. Students may hold a title for a specific time by checking at the Reserve Desk.

The library reserve collection also includes course notes, sample exams, and other instructor prepared materials. Many of these resources are also available electronically from our eReserve collection.

Reserve Materials Fines: $1.00 per HOUR up to $24.00 per book. Please note, if we bill you for a Reserve title (approximately 3-days late) you will be responsible for the full cost of the item, even if the book is returned.
