Permanent Reserves

There is a small group (approximately 100-150) of Rod Library items that have been separated from the main collection to give them more restricted access. These items have greater access restrictions for several reasons, including high use rate or prone to theft or mutilation. Examples of permanent reserve items include the UNI Budget, APA Style Manual, and MLA Style Manual. Permanent Reserve circulation policies require the following:

  1. Permanent reserve items can be checked out for 2 hours, but must remain in the building.
  2. Permanent reserve items can be located in UNISTAR and have a designated location of RESERVE.
  3. Permanent reserve items cannot be renewed for check out.
  4. All items checked out at the Circulation Desk must be returned to the Circulation desk.
