Course Reserves


Reserves are books, articles, films, and other items that your professor has assigned for your course work.

To see a complete list of the materials for your class, log in to Course Reserves and click the title of the course.

Checkouts and Fines

Reserve check-outs are generally three hours long. You can have up to two renewals, unless another student has placed a hold on the item. 

Reserve items accrue fines at $1 per hour. Be sure to renew or return your items on time to avoid being fined. At the end of each day, any fines not paid at the Information Desk will be added to your bill in OPUS.


The library is happy to assist you with placing electronic and physical items on reserve for your classes. Reserves are normally available within one working day, but may take longer at the start of the semester.

All electronic materials uploaded to Course Reserves must have complete citation information and comply with U.S. copyright law and Emory's copyright policies.

Please contact Kitty McNeill or see Emory Libraries' copyright policies regarding reserves for more information.
