Reserve & three day loan items

The Reserve Collection consists of e-Reserve (Electronic Reserve) and a print collection. It provides Curtin students with materials selected by lecturers as required reading for courses.

Only registered students and staff from Curtin University, UWA, ECU, Murdoch University and the University of Notre Dame can borrow from the Reserve Collection.

e-Reserve

The Library’s e-Reserve provides you with electronic copies of many course readings set by your lecturer. Please note not all materials will be available electronically.

You can access these through the Library Catalogue and they can be copied, downloaded or printed for study purposes.

Reserve Collection

How do I borrow?

You can use the Reserve resources in the High Demand area. If you wish to use them anywhere outside the High Demand area, including the rest of the Library, you will need to borrow them.

You can borrow a maximum of two items for up to two hours at a time. Please note there are larger fines applicable for overdue Reserve items.

Always check your Borrower Information which will tell you by when you need to return your item.

Overnight Borrowing

You can borrow Reserve items overnight. Overnight loans begin two hours before full service closing time and must be returned at opening time the next day.

Booking Reserve Collection Items

You cannot book Reserve items held at Robertson Library. However, you can book Reserve Collection items at Kalgoorlie Library by contacting staff.

Items must be used in person at the site where the item is held.

Three day loans

Three day loan items are popular course material texts that are only available for short three day loans to ensure as many students as possible have access to them.

These items are shelved in the main collection on levels four, five and six. They are identifiable by the label saying “3 Day Loan” on the spine of the book.

Only registered students and staff from Curtin University, UWA, ECU, Murdoch University and the University of Notre Dame can borrow three day loan items.

There are fines for returning three day loan items late.
