Auraria Library offers course reserves: materials reserved for certain courses at the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver.

Course reserves allow many students to equally share class-assigned readings. You can borrow reserves material from Ask Us in Auraria Library for short periods of time.

Course reserves are created at the request of each individual professor. Not all classes have textbooks on course reserve.

You can check out items usually for only 2 hours, although some may be designated for 4 hours, 1 day or 3-day checkout.
