Checking Out Reserves

The Reserve Collection consists of items put on Reserve by faculty for Mount courses. The College of Mount St. Joseph checks out Reserve items to Mount students and faculty. Items on Reserve are listed in FOCUS (Library Catalog) by instructor's name and by course number. The Reserve Collection is located behind the Circulation Desk. Items on Reserve may be requested from the Circulation Desk staff.

Circulation: The check-out period for items on Reserve varies:

  • 3-HOUR-LIBRARY USE ONLY loan items are due three hours from the time of check-out and may not be taken out of the Library.
  • 1-DAY loan items are due by closing on the date due.
  • 7-DAY loan items are due by closing on the date due.

Overdue Fines:

  • A fine of one dollar ($1.00) per day is charged for each 7-DAY Reserve item returned late.
  • A fine of one dollar ($1.00) per day is charged for each 1-DAY Reserve item returned late.
  • A fine of ten cents ($ .10) per hour is charged for each 3-HOUR Reserve item returned late.
