Faculty can request to place both personal items and items from the Library's collection on reserve. All personal items on reserve will be security tagged and labeled unless otherwise indicated. To place an item on reserve, please use the in-house reserve form. Complete a new reserve form for each section/class.
Reserve items may include books, DVDs, videos, articles, CDs, or journals/magazines.
Circulation options for in-house reserve include:
Please allow 48 hours for requests submitted electronically.
Reserves will be processed and available within 24 hours from when the in-house course reserve request form is received. (Friday and Saturday submissions will be processed on Sunday after 6:00pm.) To expedite processing time, please bring the items to the user services desk when submitting the form.
Reserves staff can retrieve materials if an in-house reserve form is submitted electronically. However, processing time may take up to 48 hours. Reserves staff are not responsible for incorrect volumes or editions. All foreign language material must be selected and brought to the user services desk by the faculty member placing them on reserve.
Requests will be processed in the order received.
Reserve lists will be removed at the end of the semester. Faculty will receive an electronic report indicating usage during the semester. Personal items will be returned through campus mail, facility services, or faculty may pick them up at the user services desk.
Copyright law prohibits the Library from placing items from other libraries on reserve.
