Hello, I am taking a course that has provided me with a "Ryerson University Library Call Number". How do I access this item?
If the location indicates that the item is on Reserve (2nd floor), you will need to bring the call number of the item required to the Circulation Desk on the main floor of the Library. Reserve means the item you would like to borrow is only available for a short-term loan. Professors teaching a specific course often place high demand items in the reserve collection so that more students are able to access the material.
Items in the general collection are shelved on floors 6-10, and you will also need the call number with you. Either write it down, or use the option in the catalogue to text or email this information to you. A detailed explanation of how to understand call numbers is available here or watch the following video: Finding Call Numbers Video Tutorial (1:50 minutes)
