Course reserve collection (CRC)
Important literature for individual courses - composed according to the requests of the lecturer - is kept for one or more semesters at a central place in the respective departmental library or the Main Library for on-site use only. Accordingly, all books of one course reserve collection are tagged with the same temporary shelf mark (to indicate where to find them).
