Course Reserves

Textbooks and other class materials are placed on reserve by instructors. These items can't leave the library, but you can check them out to use within the library. Course reserves can be found using the library catalog, linked below. You can also speak to the library staff to determine if a book is available at your campus. 

Finding Books in the Library

Dallas College Libraries use the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System to organize items in their physical collection. To find a book on the shelf, you will need some information from the Library Catalog. Under the title of the book in the catalog, you will see the CampusSection, and Call Number.

For example, this information may be listed as Available at Brookhaven Campus (Brookhaven is the Campus where this book is located) Main Collection (main collection is the section where this book is located in library) TS 227.2 .S34 (the call number tells where this book is shelved in the library).
