Reserve Items

Reserve materials (books, articles, videos etc.) have been set aside at the library by faculty members for use by the students of Delgado Community College. The materials are owned by the faculty member who placed them on reserve or the library. These are high-use materials with a shorter loan period to accommodate the demand.

Most reserve materials are limited to 1-2 hours in-library use only while some items may circulate for up to 1-2 days.

Please be mindful of the loan period.
