Getting to course reserves
Finding your course
Log into your TOPCAT account and sign in. If you are startin from TOPCAT, click "Sign in" at the top your right corner, and then your name. Click "My Loans," and the blue "Renew" after each item. You may check the boxes next to items and use "Renew All," however, if you include recently checked out item, this will use one of your two renewals. Most items can be renewed twice. For questions about renewals, or grey "Not Renewable" items, please call Circulation at 414.382.6433 or a librarian at 414.382.6062.
Please see a librarian. Group study rooms are typically first come, first served; have a 3-hour maximum limit; may not be reserved more than twice in one week; and must be reserved for 3 hours advance. For instance, if a student wishes to reserve a room from 5pm to 8pm, they must approach a librarian at 2pm or earlier.
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. Nursing courses' Practice-based Inquiry Projects, also known as MSN Capstone Projects, are found in our TOPCAT catalogue here. You can find more information from the MSN Capstone tab of the Nursing LibGuide.
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.
