Philosophy Department: Find class readings?

This guide provides resources to support teaching and research for the department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University.

Find readings placed on reserve by instructors

Instructors sometimes place reading materials and textbooks on reserve at the lending desk of any one of our libraries, depending on the course subject or instructor's preference.

Note:  The easiest way to find readings is by instructor's name; but you can also use course numbers or names.

To find a reading:

  1. On the right, type in the instructor's name (or other information).

  2. Click a "Lookup" box that matches the criteria for your search.

Results will be displayed.  Find and record the call number and take it to the lending desk staff.

You're done!
