Guides & Help

Here is a list of helpful guides, handouts and other Web-based material related to library services.

Course Reserves

The Course Reserves collection offers course materials for most classes and are available at the Circulation Desk. Each semester, the library expects to receive two copies of newly adopted current textbooks from Akademos

These materials cannot be taken out of the library and can only be used in the library for two (2) hours. You must show a CURRENT Harold Washington College I.D. to use course reserve materials.

If you are an instructor and would like to put materials on reserve for any of your classes, please fill out the form below and bring with materials to the Circulation Desk. 

Textbooks and Copyright
