Permanent Reserves

Permanent Reserves

Along with Course Reserves, there is a small collection of books shelved at the Service Desk. These materials are items not associated with a specific course and are placed on reserve in order to maximize access and minimize the loss of the material.

These items are typically the newest editions of standard textbooks and additional copies of reference materials, such as Remington: the science and practice of pharmacy.

Permanent reserve materials have the location "UHSP Service Desk" in the catalog and can be checked out for 2 hours.
