Textbook Reserves - Fall 2020

The library has a collection of textbooks on reserve for use by CR students.  Due to the pandemic, the library is not currently open for drop-in services - but we are checking reserve materials out by arrangement.  Although we have many textbooks, we do not have copies of every textbook used at CR.

  • A limited number of textbooks for certain courses are available for checkout for the entire term.
  • Other texts may be available for shorter loan periods of one week.

Finding Your Book:

You can check to see if your textbook is in the reserve collection. Use the OneSearch box below and enter the title of the text.
Limit your search using the options on the left to "CR Books and Videos" and "Held by Library".
If we have copies on reserve, they will show up with a note that they are located in the Reserve collection (see the example below):



Enter the title of your textbook in the box below:

Once you know we have the textbook you want to check out, please call the library circulation desk at 707-476-4260 (or email library-circulation@redwoods.eduto arrange for pickup at the Eureka campus library.  We will pull the book and hold it under your name.

  • Pickups may be scheduled between 10:00 - 5:00 Monday-Thursday and 10:00 - 4:00 Friday.

Students who live at a significant distance from the campus may have the books mailed to them at no cost. 

  • When you come to the library, you will need to follow the directions on our signs.
  • Please wear a mask covering your mouth and nose, and have a photo ID ready. 


Returning Reserve Items:

Books and videos may be returned in the library book return located to the right of the LRC foyer. A second book return is also located in the lower parking lot. If items are returned by mail, postage is the responsibility of the student. 
Please make an appointment to return computers, calculators, and other equipment directly to library staff. Do not return in the book drop or you may be charged if they are damaged!

Reserve Equipment

In addition to textbooks, the library's reserve collection includes certain equipment needed for courses. These items are available on a first-come, first-served basis to students enrolled in specific courses and in many cases they can be checked out for use at home for the duration of the semester.

To check on the availability of a specific type of equipment and make arrangements for pickup, please follow the same procedures outlined above for textbook reserves.  

Please note:
Delivery by mail may not be available for all types of equipment such as computers or music keyboards which must be picked up at the Eureka Campus.  You also may be asked to sign a borrowing agreement for specific items.
