The Georgetown University in Qatar Library provides reserve services to ensure access to core course readings that, due to high demand, would not otherwise be available to all students in a class.
Students may borrow up to three reserve items at one time. Reserve items are available on a first come, first serve basis. Reserve items cannot be held, recalled, or renewed. To be considerate of other students, please return reserve readings on time.
Faculty may request that a print copy of materials selected for electronic reserve will remain available at the circulation desk for students to use. The electronic version of those materials will be available via the Web 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for student access.
Print reserves are located at the main circulation desk of the Library. Reserve checkouts are available during library opening hours. Print Reserves consist of:
- Books owned by the Qatar or Main Campus Libraries that are assigned as required or supplemental readings for courses;
- Faculty members' personal copies of materials for their courses;
- Photocopied articles placed in a single notebook for the course;
- At least one copy of every required textbook.
Most items can only be checked out for short-term use by currently registered students and faculty members. Reserve items are loaned for 4 hours, 1 day or 3 days.
