Course Reserves: Student Info

How to find Course Reserves

When you come to the Wong AVC circulation desk, please have the following information ready:

  • Instructor's Name
  • Course (example, ACC 418)
  • Call Number and Title

To search for reserves through the Hawaii Voyager Catalog.

Fill out as many fields as possible with your course information.  To simplify your search type the first letter of what you are looking for in each field.

After finding the correct course, you will see a list of the items that the faculty has put on reserve.

Check to see if an item is available by clicking on the title and looking at the 'status'. If the item is checked out, it will give the date and time the item is due.

Loan Periods and Fines

How many course reserve items can a patron check out?
One at a time, except at the discretion of the faculty.

How long can reserve items be checked out for?
The loan period is designated by the faculty and ranges from 2 hours to 7 days.  Overnight loans for hourly reserve items are possible from 2 hours before the Wong Audiovisual Center closes and at the discretion of the faculty.

Can patrons renew reserve items?
2-hour and 3-hour loans may be renewed 15 minutes after the item is returned, or immediately if another copy is available.
Cannot be renewed less than 15 minutes before closing or online.

1-day, 2-day, 7-day loans may be renewed 1 hour after the item is returned, or immediately if another copy is available. Cannot be renewed less than 1 hour before closing or online.

If Sinclair Library is open 24 hours, can I check out reserves whenever I want?
All of the closed reserves are located in the Wong AVC and can only be checked out during business hours. Electronic reserves are always available wherever there is internet access. 

If I'm trying to access an electronic course reserve and I don't know what my UH username and password are, what should I do?
Your UH username is the first part of your UH email address and your password is the same as when you are logging into e-mail account. The password can be reset by an ITS lab attendant in the CLIC computer labs located in Hamilton and Sinclair Libraries.
