If Sinclair Library is open 24 hours, can I check out reserves whenever I want to?
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.
