Policies and Information
We lend textbooks, DVDs, and CDs for many courses as part of our course reserve service. Most items can be borrowed for three hours from the reserve/circulation desk (2nd floor of the library). Electronic reserve materials (such as articles, book chapters we’ve scanned, etc.) are available online in our e-reserve system. Faculty and students can access e-reserves from anywhere on or off campus by logging in with the course password and their Baruch username and password.
In the OneSearch system, you can find physical items (as opposed to digital items) on reserve by searching by:
- book title
- book author
- course number
- Put “bb” in front of the course number (no spaces) as your search term
- Example: for PHI 1500, search for bbphi500
Most print textbooks are kept behind the the reserve/circulation desk on the 2nd floor of the library. Give the staff there the course number and the title of the book. Others may be listed in OneSearch with a location of “First Floor Kiosk,” which can be found on the ground floor of the library building just past the turnstiles.
No, all reserve items are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be requested in advance.
You can be added to a waitlist while you are in the library. To see when a book is due back, search for it in the“Reserves” portion of OneSearch, click on “Locations,” and then look for the due date and time under “status.
Yes, you can take them to class or outside of the library. Let our staff know that you want to take the book outside so you won’t set off the security sensors at the library exit.
Yes, you can renew the loan period once (i.e., extend it for longer), but only if there is no waiting list for the book
You may continue to use a reserve book after the circulation desk closes, but it must be placed in the bookdrop before the library closes. When the library is open 24 hours, the book must be placed in the bookdrop by 7 AM. Calculators, keys, and other nonprint materials must be returned before the circulation desk closes.
