Course Reserves are supplemental class materials reserved by instructors for student use outside the classroom. Materials are housed in Access Services, and you must have an MSU ID to check them out.

Print and traditional course reserves include books, objects, sample student projects, movies, or CDs. The course reserves desk, located at Access Services, is available during Mitchell Memorial Library hours, and copiers are available nearby.

Electronic course reserves (or "e-reserves") include syllabi, instructor-authored work, PowerPoint slides, student sample work, example tests, class notes, book chapters, and journal articles, and are available via the MSU Libraries' website. They are password-protected to restrict access to MSU faculty, staff, and students.

For assistance, contact Access Services' Course Reserves staff or call (662) 325-8706.
