Library Catalog: Locate Course Reserves
To find out which materials have been placed on reserve for a Case and MSASS course, choose the “Course Reserves” option on the main Library Catalog page. This will take you to a screen that allows you to locate a course by its name or its instructor. It is easiest to use the Course Instructor option which allows you to search for reserve materials using the instructor’s name (last name first).
Once you have done this, you will get a list of the courses currently being taught by that instructor. View a list of courses in the online catalog. [Note: This link may not work when the professors are not teaching multiple courses.]
Choose the course that you are interested in. This will take you to a screen that lists the materials for the course and how to locate them. View an example of course reserve information for a single class.
Books are listed in upper and lower case letters. A call number will be displayed for each book.
Course readings appear on the online reserve list as titles in all capital letters. The number of the folder will also appear on the record.
Reserve items are handled differently at each of the Case Western Reserve University libraries. At the MSASS Harris Library, reserve items are kept behind the circulation desk. Books are shelved by call number, not by the name of the course or instructor. Reserve articles or readings are kept in folders by instructors’ names. As all faculty are now using Blackboard; you will find that most reserve articles and readings are available from there.
