Course Reserves for Faculty: Home

Faculty may make available supplemental materials for the classes that they teach each semester. This material includes books, printed materials, and other physical items. Course Reserve material may be checked out at the Circulation Desk.

How?

1. Fill out the reserve request form below.

2. List all of the items that you want to put on reserve. 

Note: If you are placing something on Reserve not currently in the library’s collection you will need to deliver the material to the Circulation Desk within two business days.

3. Choose a loan period (for print items only).  Loan periods available are:

  • TWO HOUR CHECK-OUT: NOT TO LEAVE LIBRARY
  • THREE HOUR CHECK-OUT: NOT TO LEAVE LIBRARY
  • ONE DAY CHECK-OUT
  • THREE DAY CHECK-OUT
  • ONE WEEK CHECK-OUT
  • TWO WEEK CHECK-OUT
  • THREE WEEK CHECK-OUT

All reserve materials may be checked out for an additional loan period if there have been no other requests for them.

Note: The Library charges students $1.00 per day for each overdue reserve item. A barcode will be placed on each personal copy and/or copied material.

Policies and Processing:

Reserve lists should be submitted at least 7 days before the class is told that your materials are on reserve.  All reserve lists are processed in order of receipt.  Please submit your list as early as possible to provide these materials to your students.

Reserve materials will be removed from Reserve at the end of each semester unless a different date is indicated.  Personal copies of books or media will be returned to your office by campus mail unless you pick them up in person.  Photocopies will not be returned except by request.

The Library cannot be responsible for replacing lost personal copies of books or articles, although every effort will be made to see that this does not occur.
