Course Reserves

The Jenkins Library manages reserves for course in the College of Architecture and Design, as well as the School of Art.  Books, videos and other physical material may be borrowed at the service desk.  These materials may be used in the library.  Free scanning service is provided.  Students may also make copies using their free library printing credits or their flex account.  Both require the use of their UH identification card. 

Readings may be found on the course page in Blackboard or by linking to our course reserves server
