Periodicals / Reserves / E-Reserves

The Periodicals / Reserves Department includes reserve materials and current periodicals.

Reserve materials include study guides and examination reviews for the GRE, ExCet, TASP, TOEFL tests as well as current textbooks and course materials. Reserve materials have restricted loan policies. Most material is flagged for building use only. E-Reserve materials are digital copies of materials that are accessible through the library catalog.

Approximately 2,200 current periodicals are kept on the closed shelves in this department. All unbound periodicals are restricted for building use only. Older volumes, which have been bound, are located on the stack floors and may be checked out by graduate students, faculty and staff. Older periodicals that are not bound are received on microform and may be viewed on microform reader/printers.

In addition to the standard microform readers and printers, the Periodicals / Reserves Department also provides access to a digitized microform reader connected to a PC. Patrons using the digitized reader can save microform documents to a CD through the PC's CD-RW drive, or they can email microform documents to an email account. We have found, however, that microform images fill up email accounts very rapidly; so you need to know the capacity of your email account before emailing any microform images.

The Periodicals / Reserves staff is available to assist you with their services.
