Welcome to the Course & Textbook Reserves Guide! Here you will be able to explore the entire catalogue of text-based/physical resources held within USF Sarasota-Manatee campus' Information Commons for students use. Additionally, this guide explains the step by step process to reserve a textbook as a student, or place a textbook/course material on reserve as a faculty member.
The USF Sarasota-Manatee campus Course Reserve Catalogue is entirely physical in nature, and requires students to check out the texts in person. This guide allows uses to digitally to preview current offerings. The catalogue is broken down into several subjects/majors, as well as a test prep section which highlights different graduate program testing. See drop down boxes on the left hand side of this guide to identify all the specific "Subjects" and "Test Prep" text materials we offer.
Checking out a Course & Textbook Reserve
Lending a Textbook out to the Course Reserves
Information Commons is happy to organize and consolidate faculty-provided texts and course materials within our reserves. Interested faculty may contact our librarian directly, or stop by Information Commons anytime during posted business hours to speak with staff regarding the loan process. The loaning faculty member will be asked to fill out an information form for each resource with specifics such as course(s), loan period limitations, etc. Once completed, staff members will add all new texts to our databases and begin loaning to students.
