LIBCAT - Library Catalog: Course Reserves

A guide on how to use the Online Library Catalog to find books, theses, course reserves and other library materials, and on how to create an account allowing you to put items on hold, renew items online, and save searches.

Course Reserves

Some course readings are places on reserve so that they are readily available for all students.

LIBCAT is the easiest way to find out what books, videos, CDs, etc... are on reserve for your class.

Search for your class either by Course number/name or by Instructor's last name.

Sample Search

Enter the course name or number in the Course Search box e.g. NFSC, ARAB, or arab 102 


  • If there is only one match, the course record will open and the items on reserve for that course will display. 

  • If there are multiple matches, a list of search results will display. 


  • Select the course you are looking for to view a list of materials on reserve for that course. 


  • Click on the title to view the bibliographic information (location, call number, link to electronic copy whenever available, etc...) 

N.B. Reseve materials are kept at the Reserve Desks in the libraries.
