Heavily used items and those requested by instructors for assigned class reading are kept on Reserve. Because the demand for these items is high, loan periods are shortened, fine rates are higher, and materials cannot be "recalled."
Reserves may be physically housed by one of the three libraries on the Pullman campus. In Holland/Terrell and Owen Libraries, you may pick up reserve materials at the circulation desk in the library.
If the item is an article, or can be easily scanned while observing copyright, it will be put on "e-reserves."'
Items on reserve in Holland and Terrell Libraries, and the Owen Science and Engineering Library are available at the circulation desk upon request, as long as the call number from Search It and a valid WSU ID are supplied. Loan periods are generally from two hours to three days. Many Reserve items from these collections are only available for use in the Library, only (i.e. they cannot leave the building). The Health Science Libraries all have "open" reserve collections which patrons can use directly without asking.
