Where can you get your course textbooks and reference books?

Science course textbooks and reference books are located in the Reserves section at Lee Wee Nam Library.

Post - 2016 08 - reserves

Please take note that you can borrow the books in the Reserves section for only 2 hours. If you hold the book for more than 2 hours, you will need to pay $0.50 per hour for every extra hour.

However, if you borrow these books 2 hours before the Service Desk closes on weekdays, and at 10 am on Saturdays, you can return them by 11 am the next working day.

If you are not a freshman, you may know that Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics course textbooks were used to be in the Library Outpost and the Automated Reserves Machine (ARM) located at Level 1 of The Hive. They have been moved back to Lee Wee Nam library since June 2016.
