YOUR campus Library is here to help! Did you know the Library has copies of most course textbooks and other course materials, available for students to use FOR FREE???
The Alexandria campus actively seeks out copies of course textbooks which are held on reserve.
Reserves are course materials, usually textbooks, provided for student use. Because of the high demand for these items, most course reserves cannot be removed in the Library, and most are on a 2-hour loan to give as many students as possible a chance to use them. Reserves are also the only Library materials that carry fines -- overdue course reserves accrue fines of $4/ hour.
To use course reserves, you will need a valid NOVAcard. Although most reserve materials are designated for Library Use Only, students may, for their own use, make photocopies, scans, or take pictures with mobile devices.
