Reserves, also known as Reserve Books / Readings (RBR) titles or Red-spot books are recommended textbooks selected by your lecturers for your course modules.

Browsing the Reserves Collection

Reserve titles for Medicine are located in the Reserves section at the Medical Library, located at the Novena campus at Mandalay Road. Books in this collection can be identified by the red-spot sticker on the book spine.

Note that books under the reserves collection can only be borrowed AND returned at the loan counter during opening hours. These books can only be borrowed for 2 hours for students; overdue fines are set at $0.50 per hour.

However, students can borrow RBR titles overnight. Overnight loans begin at 5.30pm and books must be returned at the counter before 11am the next day.

Do refer to your loan privileges at the NTU library site to check if reserve titles are available to you.

Searching for Reserve Materials

You can search for reserve titles available to you on the NTU library website.
