Many professors put books and articles on reserve for you in the Library. One class even has a plastic skeleton set on reserve, to learn human anatomy with!
"On reserve" means that you can check out the item for a limited period of time, usually a few hours. Many reserve items are scanned PDFs available online-- use your campus username and password to access them.
Find your reserves online or visit the 3rd floor Check Out Desk.
