Reserve Collection

The Reserve collection is located behind the Circulation Desk. The collection includes all required and recommended books for current courses; heavily used materials such as The Bluebook and the Texas Rules of Form; audiovisual materials; and items placed on reserve by professors.

Course Reserves

Materials placed on course reserve by a faculty member can be searched through the Reserve Desk in the library catalog.

Checking Out Reserve Items

To check out a Reserve item, please write down the item's call number, then ask the Circulation Clerk to retrieve the item for you. Patrons may not retrieve items from the Reserve collection on their own. Patrons with circulation privileges may check out a Reserve item by presenting their Texas A&M University ID card. Other patrons may check out an item by leaving their driver's license or other valid photo ID with the Circulation Clerk while they are using the item.

Most Reserve items may be checked out for in-library use only for up to two hours; however, videocassettes and DVDs may be checked out by patrons with circulation privileges and taken out of the law library for 24 hours. Patrons without circulation privileges may use these items in the law library only.
