Course Reserves (Students)

Librarian hands pulling books from a shelf.

Find course reserves for a class you're enrolled in.

As indicated in this screenshot, users can select Course Reserves via a dropdown menu.

You can find course reserves with UIC Library Search.

Use the “Course Reserves” dropdown menu next to the search input form.  This will limit your search to items which have Course Reserves.  For example, if you were looking for books for your Art History class, you could search by:

  • Your course number, e.g. AH 111
  • Your subject or department, e.g. Art History
  • Your instructor’s name
