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 Hunter database. These include library books, videos and CDs. This material may be searched by title, author or keyword.
Also available at the Reserve Desk
VHS cassettes, DVDs, and music CDs are kept at the A/V Reserve Desk on the second floor of the library. Videos and music CDs which are not reserved for a class may be borrowed for 7 days. Teacher evaluations, the last several years of Hunter College catalogs, and scientific calculators, are also kept at the A/V Reserves Desk.
Video, audio and CD players are available for personal use on the 2nd floor of the Wexler Library. Headphones are required for viewing and listening to audio-visual materials in the Library. Headphones can be borrowed at the A/V Reserve Desk.
Equipment to assist students with disabilities is available and can be requested at the A/V Reserve Desk. Study rooms for students with disabilities are located on the 2nd floor of the Main Campus Library and can be reserved at the Reserve Desk.
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.
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 Cooperman Library. Fines can be paid by check, money order, and Hunter OneCard, 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.
The Reserve Desk closes 15 minutes before the Library. All reserve material must be returned before the Reserve Desk closes.
