Course Reserves


Frequently a professor will "reserve" books, articles, notes, past tests, etc. for use by a class.  Some of these materials are available through your computer and others must be used in the library.

Search for reserves:

by instructor or by course number

You will need to identify yourself as a WCU Library patron. Find out how by clicking here.


Most problems are caused by either not having the latest Adobe Acrobat plug-in or not using your correct ID number. The Adobe Acrobat plug-in is free for Windows or Mac.

If updating to the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat does not resolve your problem, or you are still having trouble with your ID number, contact the Circulation desk at (828)227-7485 any time during library hours.
