How do I find my course textbook?


Your course textbook or prescribed text can be found in the Closed Reserve Collection which is at the Main Issue Desk (Laucala).

  1. Simply access the library search tool: and change the first two search fields to Closed Reserve and Course ID
  2. Then enter the course ID, select it from the results list
  3. From the next list click on either Closed Reserve OR your regional library if it is listed
  4. Click on the title and note down the shelf number.
  5. Take it to the Main Issue Desk and the staff there will collect and issue the book to you.

NOTE: all books are 2 hour loans but some can be taken out overnight if you borrow them within 2 hours of library closing time.
