Reserve materials not available in electronic format are kept at the Circulation/Reserve Desk. The Circulation/Reserve Desk is the first counter in the main library area adjacent to the front door.  Please note: The Circulation/Reserve Desk hours differ from the Library building hours.

You will need your Kean University Photo ID Card with your student identification number to access reserve materials kept at the Circulation/Reserve Desk.

You must also know your instructor's name and course number to obtain reserve materials.

Print reserve materials can be used typically for 2 hours at a time in the Library. Fines will be assessed if you do not return the reserve items in the allotted time period.

Students may access information about print Course Reserves for one of their courses by taking the following steps:

  • Click the Course Reserves link (below the Search Resources box) on the Nancy Thompson Library Learning Commons website.
  • Type the course name or instructor's name in the search box.
  • Click the search button.
  • Click the course number and name to access information about the items the professor has placed on reserve.

If you have any questions, please check with a Circulation Desk staff member.
