Reserve Room

Campus libraries provide a Reserve Room for instructors' materials. The Reserve Room contains a collection of instructor-owned textbooks, tapes, and papers placed in the library by the instructors for the use of their students. This special collection also holds some library-owned books which require a short loan time. All telecourse VHS/DVD's are available from the Reserve Room.

Instructor will determine the conditions for the loan. The loan period is typically two hours, but other time allotments may be designated -- even up to three months. If deemed necessary, material such as the telecourses are restricted to use within the library only.

Late returns incur fines. The charge varies with the type of loan. Be sure to ask when the item is due. You are responsible for the item until it is returned.

The Reserve Room is open during the library hours.

Contact the Circulation Desk for further information.

Interlibrary loan

Interlibrary loan (ILL) enables RCC students, faculty, and staff to obtain materials that are not available in local libraries. Community library users are not eligible for this service, but should contact their public library.
The lending library determines whether a particular item can be provided, and the length of time it is on loan.
How long will it take?
The time it takes to receive requested material generally depends upon the location of the lending library. Materials borrowed from Pacific Northwest libraries can be expected within five days to two weeks. Items from libraries in other parts of the country may take three or four weeks.
How long may I keep the library's materials?
Generally materials are checked out for two weeks. Renewals are sometimes possible if requested prior to due date.
How do I submit a request?
As a first step, check to be sure that the material is not availably locally. Next check the SOU library catalog to see if the material is available there. If the item is not found, then use First Search for access to WorldCat and several other databases.
