Shutdown Notice


The Madison College Libraries are not able to provide course reserves due to the COVID-19 shutdown. The textbooks that have been placed on reserve are safe and sound in the Madison College Libraries, but as books require a 72 hour quarantine between users, they are not available until further notice.  We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank-you for your understanding.

Electronic Reserves

Electronic reserves allow instructors to make supplemental course materials such as journal articles, lecture notes, web links, or sample exams available through the library web pages. Some electronic reserve links are available through the Course Reserves catalog. Not all library reserve materials are available electronically. Documents for electronic reserves may be in electronic or hardcopy format. Electronic reserves may also include durable links to articles in library databases. Reserve materials are subject to copyright regulations.
