Course Reserves

Course reserves are textbooks and instructional materials  that are set aside by instructors for use by CCSF students. Reserves may include books, articles, homework assignments, videos/DVDs,  or other instructional content.  Because course reserves are shared by many, they are only available for check out for limited amounts of time.  Using reserved textbooks can save students money.
