In order to make it easier for you to gain access to materials needed for your courses, the library maintains a collection of materials that your instructors have requested be placed on Reserve. Be aware that it takes approximately one week to process materials before they are available.
Material placed on Reserve by instructors is also kept in the Reserve Area which is located at the Circulation Department. Reserve items may be books, articles, old exams, audio materials, or video cassettes.
Use our IUCAT Reserves search to find materials that are on Reserves.

Generally speaking, only Indiana University students, faculty and staff may take out materials on reserve. Patrons wishing to use Reserve materials must have their Indiana University CrimsonCard. This is the only item that may be used to borrow materials on Reserve. The Library also keeps a few special items on reserve such as preparation books for the GMAT, GRE, LSAT, and Police Officer Exams.
Most Reserves materials may not leave the library. There is a limit of one item per student which may be checked out at one time. Be advised that the Reserve materials have significant fines for overdues. All materials must always be returned to the Reserve Desk to avoid a fine.
