What You Should Know About Textbooks on Reserve

Did you know that the textbooks you need may not cost you a cent? Many are on reserve at the (Denton) Blagg-Huey Library, the Dallas Center Library, or the Houston ARC.

WHAT ARE RESERVE ITEMS?
Reserve items are books and other items, kept at the Circulation Desks at each of the TWU Libraries, for which professors have requested abbreviated, temporary loan periods for the convenience of their students. Bring your current TWU ID to the Circulation Desk at your TWU campus library; a staff member will check if the textbook you need is available.  

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT USING RESERVE ITEMS?
Most of them must be used in the library, and the average checkout time for reserve items is four hours. Reserve items cannot be renewed, but can be checked out again--we simply ask that you wait a full checkout period before checking an item out again (for a book with a four-hour checkout period, for example, you would need to wait four hours after returning it before checking it out again.)

DOES THE LIBRARY CARRY TEXTBOOKS FOR EVERY TWU CLASS?
No. Although many high-demand textbooks are on reserve, not all textbooks are available. If you think your textbook should be on reserve but isn't, talk to your professor; s/he may send us a copy.

More information about Course Reserves is available here. Need assistance? Please contact the Denton Circulation Department at 940-898-3719.
