Answer

The RBR collection is meant for teaching staff to place copies of high demand library books in the Reserve Books / Readings Collection (RBR).

As such, items in this Collection are loaned out for two-hour periods (no renewals, but can be brought out of library as long returned on time) or overnight which is available two hours before the library closes. The RBR room in central library itself closes one hour before the library closes. Overnight loans must be returned within one hour after the library opens the next working day (Overnight loans do not apply to items borrowed from the book dispenser - NUSL Express). RBR items must be returned to the loan counter of the library where it was borrowed. A fine of $1.00 per hour is charged for overdue loans.

RBR items are borrowed on a first-come-first served basis and cannot be reserved in advance.
