Circulation of Library Materials
Most books and other circulating items in the Reeves Library Collection are loaned to students for a period of one month and to faculty for the current semester. Faculty may borrow videos on a two-week loan period; students view videos in the library or for overnight checkout.
Library holdings may be searched in the Arthur catalog. Arthur allows you to search our holdings as well as those at William Woods, Lincoln, Columbia, and Stephens, individually or all together. You may also search other Mobius libraries including the University of Missouri Columbia.

Putting Materials on Reserve
Materials to support classroom instruction may be made available on E-Reserves under the Library Reserve Repository in the Moodle E-Reserves course management software program or on Library Reserves for use in the library. A lead time of 24-working hours is needed to process items for Library Reserves and Moodle E-Reserves. Items needed over the weekend should be brought to the library by noon on Thursday.
