  2. 2. 1. What are course reserves? Course reserves (also known as RBR or red-spot materials) are recommended textbooks & videos for your course modules selected by your lecturers. Course reserves are high demand materials and thus have shorter loan periods. 2. Where are course reserves located? Course reserves are located on the shelves beside the Service Desk. Course reserves can be identified by the red dot pasted over the yellow dot on the spine of the materials. Do borrow reserves before using! Don’t increase the waiting time for the next user who needs the material as much as you do. CreatedbyArt,Design&MediaLibrary-August2013
  3. 3. 3. How do I use course reserves? You will need to borrow course reserves at the Service Desk before bringing them out of the reserves area (eg. for photocopying, or further reading). To view Reserve AVs, you will be issued with an AV Pouch to use at the Viewing Carrels upon borrowing. 4. How long can I borrow course reserves? Reserve books can be borrowed for 2 hours or overnight if borrowed 2 hours before the library closes. Overnight loans are due at 11am the next working day. Reserve videos can be borrowed for 4 hours, to be viewed within the library premises at the Viewing Carrels. Do return reserves on time as overdue fines are $0.50 cents per hour or part thereof.
