The Reserved Book Collection exists to ensure access to Reserved Collection materials for student use.  The heavy use of items in this collection is accommodated through very short loan periods and, sometimes, the requirement that materials be used in the library. Each of the college’s campus libraries maintains a reserve collection.

Items in this area are available for three or two hour loan and in some cases overnight, two day or weekend loan. Items borrowed for overnight loan or two day must be returned by 10:30am the next day. Weekend loan begins on Fridays for day school and Thursday for evening school and must be returned before 10:30am on the Monday of the   following week. Failure to comply will results in fines.


Library members may borrow a maximum of two reserved collection items at a time for two or three hours. Items may be taken out of the Library. Selected Reserved Collection titles can also be borrowed be either one or two day loans.  Students who do not have a valid MBCC ID will not be issued any item. Students are permitted to borrow up to two items from this collection, a dictionary and any other title; dictionaries are not available for take home loans.



Renewing                                If there are no conflicting bookings (request) on items, clients may renew their Reserved Collection loans for one additional period.



Returning items                 

Reserved Collection items should be returned to the designated Reserved Collection returns area of the library where you borrowed the item. ID cards are returned upon successful completion of this task; once the user has not incurred any library fines or penalties.


Penalties for overdue items   

Failing to return Reserved Collection material promptly inconveniences other users. Items not returned stipulated loan period will incur penalties.
