McFarlin Course and Textbook Reserves

McFarlin Course and Textbook Reserves are programs that increase student access to course materials at no cost to the student. Our Course Reserves program either allows faculty members to loan books from their personal collection to the library for student use, or to request that the library pull books from its own collection to set aside for a specific course or program.

Comparatively, the McFarlin Textbook Reserve program purchases required textbooks over $100 for all undergraduate classes so that students have equal and reliable access to course materials while on-campus.

McFarlin Library will circulate all Reserves for the Fall 2021 semester and will not quarantine items. Items will be sanitized between uses and immediately available for the next patron to use.
