Research Resources


Library Reserve books can be checked out for only a few hours or few days, depending on the designation they were given. (Warning: Library fines are rather high for overdue library reserve books.) If you can only check them out for a few hours, locate the material you want and photocopy it while you are in the library. You may also want to photocopy selected material from books you can check out for several days.

The reason these books are on reserve is to make sure everybody has access to certain books on Dickinson. There are also other Dickinson books in the stacks, but be careful--some are older and out-of-date. You can also order books through Interlibrary Loan, but it may take them 10 days to get the books, and the books may turn out to be no more helpful than the ones we have here.

NOTE: Take this list with you to the main check-out desk. I believe they locate the books by title (you can't go back and browse through them).
