When placing materials on reserve in the MiraCosta College Libraries, you may specify whether you want the materials on Open Reserve or Closed Reserve.
Open reserve items are housed in the Open Reserve Stacks and are available to students for two-hour in-library use.
Items may be placed on Closed Reserve at a faculty/staff member’s discretion. Items on Closed Reserve are housed behind the library Circulation Desk and are only available to students upon presentation of a valid MCC ID card or its equivalent.
When placing materials on reserve in the MiraCosta College Libraries, Faculty/Staff should allow 24 hours between the time they leave materials at the library for reserve purposes and the time they notify their classes that the items are available.
When students request reserve items, they must know the instructor’s name, course name or title of item on reserve.
