Course reserves

Short-term loans (Course Reserves)

Short-term loans (STLs) or 'Course Reserves' are items that professors request to be placed in restricted loan period because they are required readings for a course. At the Dentistry Library, Course Reserves can be checked out at 12:30 p.m. or later, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Items borrowed must be returned by 9:30 a.m. the next business day (for example, if borrowed on a Friday afternoon, they are due back by 9:30 a.m. the following Monday). The fine for an overdue reserve item is 50 cents per hour. Course Reserves cannot be renewed or returned at other U of T libraries.
