Instructors can place materials on reserve in the library in order to make them readily available to students in their classes. Most reserve items are textbooks for courses taught at PCC. However, reserve items can also include audio visual materials, models for Biology, and computer programs.
Most reserve materials do not leave the Library; however, instructors can choose any loan period that they feel is necessary in order for their students to complete a particular assignment.
If you know the name of your course, you can quickly view the Reserve List, which is a Google Doc maintained by the circulation staff, to see what items are currently on reserve.
If you have any questions about the reserve process, please contact the Circulation Desk at (252) 493-7350.
From the online library catalog, click "Reserve Desk."
You will have the option to search by instructor's name, course number, or course name.
