Library Reserves Information


Welcome back!  

During Summer 2018, all course reserves were moved from the Gateway Library to Fenwick Library.   This includes print books put on reserve by professors and print materials put on reserve as part of the Library's Text Select program.

The Library also upgraded its information systems and this has affected how to search for reserves.  Searching by course number or  instructor name are NOT supported at this time. 

Students can start by checking the TextSelect list on this page: If the book is not there, they will need to search for the book title using the advanced search function on this page: 


The borrowing period for  TextSelect books and most other reserves books is 2 hours.  The reserve books be renewed if no one is waiting for it. Copier/scanners are available in all Mason Libraries.


More information about the TextSelect Program can be found on this page:
