What is a reserve?

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.

Who may borrow a reserve?

Only Purdue Calumet undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, administrators, lecturers, clerical staff, and service staff can check out reserve materials.

How do I find a reserve?

Reserves are kept at the Public Services Desk which is located on the second floor of the Student Union and Library Building (SUL 201). To check if an item is on reserve, you may call 219-989-2224.

How do I check out a reserve?

A valid Purdue Calumet student ID card is required to check out reserve material. Reserve material is categorized by course number and instructor. Students must know this information in order to get the needed reserve material.

How long can I keep a reserve?

Reserve materials can be checked out for the loan period designated by the instructor. Generally, items are checked out for two-hour library use. However, occasionally instructors will place items on reserve for three day or one week home use.

What are the rules?

  • A limit of three reserve items may be checked out at one time.
  • Reserve materials may not be renewed.
  • Borrowers who do not return reserve materials by the date and time designated on the date due slip will be restricted to library use of all reserve materials and are liable for overdue/damage/replacement fees.
