About Course Reserves

Course Reserves is a collection of library and faculty owned materials intended for short-term loan and usually restricted to use within the Library.

Required books, readings, videos, and other course materials of all formats may be placed in Course Reserves for student and faculty use at any time during the semester.  Faculty may borrow their own materials for extended periods of time as needed.

Placing Items on Reserve

Faculty are asked to complete a Course Reserves Request Form (available below and at the Library) for each course.  Materials are typically added to Course Reserves within one business day.
