Physical reserves (e.g. books, DVDs) are not currently available. Physical materials need to be quarantined for 4 days before reuse, which prevents recirculation needed for print reserves.
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 Title of the item they wish to borrow. 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.
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. The Social Work & Urban Public Health Library has one computer reserved for students with disabilities. Ask for the location of this computer at the Circulation Desk of the Library.
Group and individual study rooms are available by reservation. Visit the A/V Reserve Desk in the Cooperman Library or the Circulation Desk in the Social Work & Urban Public Health Library to make a reservation. There are no group or individual study rooms at the Health Professions Library or Zabar Art Library.
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 the Cooperman 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.
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.
