Using On-Site Reserves

Other course material may be placed in On-Site Reserves. Instructors can submit single chapters of books, journal articles, or even complete books. On-Site reserves are assigned short loan periods and can be checked out at the Reserves desk on the first floor of the Central Library or the service desk at either the Architectures & Fine Arts Library or the Science & Engineering Library.

Access On-Site Reserves

The length of time you may borrow On-Site Reserves can vary from as little as 2 hours to as much as 7 days depending on the limits set by the course instructor.

  1. Go to the UT Arlington Library Catalog
  2. Select the "Course Reserves" tab
  3. Search for materials by instructor's name and/or course. Use the drop down arrow to select your instructor's name, then cursor down to select the course number
  4. You'll see a list of all materials on reserve for that course. Note that all E-reserve readings will be listed first, followed by the On-Site Reserves.
  5. Select the title of an item. On-Site Reserves will have a call number and location as in the following example:
    • CENPHOTO BEH 068 available, Central Library, Floor 1: Reserve
  6. Write down the call number for the reading you need, then go to appropriate Library to check it out (either the Reserves desk on the 1st floor of the Central Library or the service desk of the Architecture & Fine Arts Library or the Science & Engineering Library).
  7. The length of time you may borrow On-Site Reserves can vary from as little as 2 hours to as much as 7 days depending on the limits set by the course instructor.
  8. Be sure to return the on-site material by the due date and time assigned; reserve items accrue higher overdue fines than regular materials.
