Need to access a book located in Course Reserves or the Reference Collection? Reserve a time to come and view the book at the library!

- Reservations are limited to Biola students, staff, and faculty.

- Reservation slots are 30 minutes each and are limited to three books at a time. 

- Users will be required to wear a mask and sanitize their hands before using the books. Gloves are recommended, since the material will not be quarantined between uses.

- The request form will ask for the permalink for the book, and volume number if applicable. Instructions for finding the permalink are below. If you do not know the volume number you need, check the description in the catalog record. If the description doesn't contain the information necessary to select the volume, check the book page in Amazon to see if a table of contents can be found there in the "Look Inside this Book" feature. If volume is still unknown, please tell us what entries you need to see.

1. Open a new tab or window on your computer, leaving this page open.

2. Search for your book in the Library Catalog in the new tab.
