Course Reserves are materials reserved by faculty for use in SoM (School of Medicine) courses. Reserved materials are held at the Lane Course Reserves.

Course Reserves must be checked out and available to you only if you are registered to borrow from Lane. Due dates vary - be sure to check return time in your library account and on date due slips. A late fee of $1.00 per hour per item is assessed for overdue materials.

Course reserves can be checked out for 2 hours and can be renewed up to three times. Radiology department course reserves can be checked out for up to 28 days.

If you have any questions, please contact the Services Desk at 650-723-6831 or
