Permanent Reserves

Permanent Reserves

Along with Course Reserves, there is a small collection of books that can be found at the Service Desk. These materials are items not associated with a specific course and are placed on reserve in order to maximize public access and minimize the loss of the material.

The Permanent Reserve collection includes the newest editions of many standard textbooks and additional copies of reference materials, such as Remington: the science and practice of pharmacy.

Permanent reserve materials have the location "STLCOP Service Desk" in the catalog and can be checked out for 2 hours.
