Course Reserves

Materials for Classes

Faculty place materials (books, films, CDs) on reserve in the library for all students to share via short-term checkout. The list of reserve materials for a course is not necessarily all of the required materials for that course.

Search Course Reserves

When you use the Course Reserves search box, you will see the availability of all of the items on reserve for your course. Search by instructor name, course title, or department code (e.g. HIST), or choose the active button next to “Status” to see a list of all the courses with items on reserve this semester.

Thanks to our partnership with Macalester College Student Government’s textbook program, the library has a selection of textbooks on reserve. A complete list of all textbooks purchased by MCSG includes texts used in fall and/or spring semesters.

For more information regarding the circulation of reserve items and overdue fees, please see: Reserves Policies.
