What are Reserves?
Supplementary and required class materials and other documents of interest to the Knox Community can be placed on reserve at each library. These materials are available for checkout at the circulation desks in both libraries. Digital materials like streaming films and ebooks can also be placed on reserve, and it's a good idea to do so because they will appear in reserve lists for courses alongside the physical materials placed on reserve.
