The library circulation desk has books, textbooks, videos and other course materials on reserve.  Some of these items are available for in library use only and check out for a variety of time periods.  Please check with the library circulation desk for more information about specific course reserve materials or check the Library's Catalog to retrieve information for titles on reserve for your classes.

Faculty interested in placing items on reserve should bring their materials to the circulation desk. You can fill out your information ahead of time by using the “Textbook and Reserve” sheet on the MV Connect Forms site. For more information about reserves contact Oscar Arellano, at (708) 974-5235.  

Textbook Reserve Policy

The MVCC library will collect textbooks to be placed on reserve for courses taught at MVCC. The library will obtain up to 2 copies of current textbooks for this collection. The library will dedicate funding annually towards textbook purchases. Collection development decisions will be made by the Access Services Coordinator under the direction of the Collection Development Librarian. Selection priority will be given to items requested directly by instructors and students. Textbooks will circulate for 3 hours unless an alternate loan period is specifically requested by instructors. Special requests by instructors will be evaluated on an item by item basis.
