The Library purchases and places on reserve one copy of all required textbooks and one copy of all recommended textbooks on the class reading list. TUC adjunct faculty may place additional copies of required texts on reserve. In order to have these materials available to students for the start of the semester, the Library requests that class reading lists be submitted to the Library no later than 8 weeks before the start of the class. The Course Reserves Guide provides retrieval of reserve materials by course number/name and professor's name. For more information, see the Course Reserves page.
