To date, the total check-outs for the textbook reserve program = 10,369. This is a phenomenal number of transactions!
The Textbook Reserve program at RMU is a collaboration between the Office of Student Life and the RMU Library. It provides in-library access to close to 200 required current textbooks (many with multiple copies) for 62 courses and school-wide required textbooks.
During the Fall 2012 semester, books from this program were checked out 1,824 times to 856 unique RMU students.
And in Fall 2013, check-outs jumped 83% to 3,338 books checked out by 1,791 unique students.
Spring 2014 textbook reserve check-outs topped Spring 2013 textbook reserve check-out numbers, and textbook reserve check-outs almost doubled from the 2012-2013 Academic Year (3,755) to the 2013-2014 Academic Year (6,614).
