Course Reserves


If you would like an item placed on reserve for a class, please fill out the Course Reserves request form.

We can put library-owned or personal items on reserve for your students.

The library conducts an annual inventory of course reserve items and contacts instructors to review their course reading list. Personal items will be removed from reserve and returned to instructors via campus mail if not used within one academic year.

Remind your students that they can now search for course reserves through the library catalog! This is a quick way for students to check whether a reserve item is available and for instructors to confirm what you have on reserve for a course.

Note: The library does not offer legal counsel about copyright issues. Please visit the library’s Open Education Resources Guide for resources for learning more about copyright.
