Course Reserves

Many books in the catalog have a designation of Course Reserves. These books have a two hour loan time. If you find one of these books in the catalog and want to check it out, please ask for it at the Circulation Desk on the main floor of the library.

Print Books

We have a number of print books available for check out in the library.

Regis uses the Library of Congress system to organize books. This system organizes books by subject.

Many books on social work are located in the HV section which includes social pathology; social and public welfare; and criminology. There are also books on topics related to social work in other sections.

If you need help finding books, you can contact the Reference Desk.

Interlibrary Loan for Books

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)  is a service that allows students to request books that the Regis College Library does not own from other institutions. ILL is available for Regis College students, faculty and staff and is usually free. 

To use ILL to get a book, find the book you need in WorldCat Discovery. Click on the title, then click on the Request Item button below the book information. When available, books arrive within five to ten business days after the request has been placed.
