Reserves - for Students

The purpose of a reserve collection is to:

  1. Support the needs of a defined group of patrons within the college (usually a class).
  2. Provide timely, convenient, and efficient access to high-demand materials.

Instructors may place books (personal or belonging to the library), journal articles, and other outside readings on reserve for their students to access for typically 2 hours library use-only. Course reserves are materials chosen by instructors to support class instruction. The materials are maintained in a separate location from the general collection, and access to the material is more restricted than access to items in general circulation.

In order to access reserve materials, students must provide their Highline Student Identification card.

Students may request course reserves by course number (Bio 100, Math 148, etc). Search the library catalog to see if your course textbook is on reserve.
