Reserves are items, including textbooks, that Lawson State instructors have placed for student use at the Circulation Desk in the Libraries. Reserve materials can include additional reading assignments, sample test questions, class notes, and other course related supplements. Reserve items are arranged by course number (located on your schedule or syllabus). You will need your Lawson State Student Photo ID Card to view any reserve materials located in the library.
Reserve materials are checked out for two (2) hours at a time, and are "in-house-use", which means they are to be used only within the Libraries (Bessemer or Birmingham campus). Removing a reserve item from the Library will result in a student’s library privileges being blocked, i.e. the student will not be allowed access to any other reserve materials for any class for the rest of the semester.
Any items not returned within the specified hours of checkout will result in the student being fined or charged with the replacement cost of the item.
