Finding and Borrowing Course Reserve Materials

To borrow Course Reserve or other items from the Circulation/Reserve Desk, users must have a CUNY ID with a current validation sticker or stamp. Users must also know the Call Number of the item they wish to borrow; it is not the responsibility of the Circulation/Reserve Desk staff to search for Call Numbers for users. Reserve items are check out for 2 hours of in-library only use and may be renewed if the demand for them is not great.

Finding and Borrowing Other Reserve Materials at Cooperman Library

Non course reserve items, or reserve items that are property of the library rather than of an instructor, may be searched through CUNY+ in the Library's online catalog. These include library books, videos and CDs. This material may be searched by title, author or keyword.

Other Resources

The Health Professions Library at the Brookdale Campus has two computers designated for students with disabilities. One computer is located on the mezzanine level of the library, and the second computer is located in the library’s computer lab. At the Schools of Social Work and Public Health Library, there is one computer reserved for students with disabilities, you may ask at the Circulation Desk of the library for the location of this computer.

Reservations for group and individual study rooms are located on various floors of Wexler Library are be made at the Reserve Desk and at the Circulation Desk of the Schools of Social Work and Public Health Library.  There are no group or individual study rooms at the Health Professions Library.

Overdue Reserve Materials

The fine for overdue reserves materials is $5.00 per hour. Bills for overdue fines may be obtained at the Circulation Desks at each library or the Reserve Desk of Wexler Library. Fines can be paid by check at the Circulation Desk at any of the Hunter College libraries or in cash at the College’s Bursar Office. Reserve delinquencies may result in the suspension of borrowing privileges. A library stop will be placed on a student's record with the Registrar once a bill is generated for unreturned reserve materials. The library block will remain in place until the material(s) is returned, the overdue fine is settled or the replacement charges (for lost items) are paid.

Fines for overdue laptops are $40 per hour and and $10 per 15 minute period or any portion of the 15 minute period.

Fines for overdue iPads/tablets are $50 per day.

Reserves Desk Hours

The Circulation/Reserve Desk and A/V Reserve Desk follow the hours of the Cooperman Library. All reserve material must be returned before the Reserve Desk closes.
