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.
Please see a librarian. Group study rooms are typically first come, have a 3-hour maximum limit, and can only be reserved for 3 hours from any given moment. For instance, if a student wishes to reserve a room from 5pm to 8pm, they must approach a librarian at 2pm or sooner. It would not be possible to place a 5pm to 8pm reservation at 3pm or 4pm on that day.
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".

Education courses' Action Research Reports are still being compiled in our online library catalog. Please check back here soon for a link to them.

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.
