Getting to course reserves
Finding your course
Log into your TOPCAT account, click your name in the upper right hand corner, go to My Loans. Anything that is eligible for renewal will have a RENEW button listed next to the item. Click there and you're all set.
Group study rooms are typically first come, first serve. If you wish to reserve a group study room, please contact an Alverno librarian.
From on campus, you will need your system username and password. From off campus,
you will need to enter Alverno\ before the username (ex: Alverno\janedoe). This Alverno\ prefix is what is meant
by "organizational account".
For the most up to date links & information on accessing email from off campus, check the Tech Services website.
Thank you for your patience! We recently migrated to a new catalog and are working on getting these reports discoverable in one easy place again, check back soon.
The library has created an open reserve collection for the textbooks that we carry to make them easier for students to find and use. We do not have copies of textbooks for every class. Textbooks will have different checkout periods depending on the nature of the book and how many copies we have. Each book is labeled with the checkout period.
Fines will not be forgiven. If a student returns a book late, they must pay the fine. This is to ensure that
books are returned on time so that the highest number of students have access to them.
The fines are below:
4 hour book - $1.00/hour
3 day book - $2.00/day
7 day book - $2.00/day
This collection is updated each semester to hold only the books being used in current course offerings. To view a list of the textbooks currently held in this collection, check here in TOPCAT.
