Library Services: Course Reserves

Course Reserves

The reserve service in the library assists faculty by making more readily available those resources which multiple students must use intensively for a short period of time or repeatedly throughout the semester.  Resources placed on reserve by instructors may be marked as unable to be checked out (so others can have access) or specified with one-, two- or three-night check out privileges.


  1. Faculty must request resources owned by the library and personal materials to be placed in the reserve room by filling out a Reserve Materials Request Form for each item. The faculty member will specify the loan period and reserve duration. 
  2. All materials placed on reserve must adhere to the publisher’s copyright laws.
  3. The library has the right to limit the number of items placed in the reserve room based on space, usage, cost, and availability. The library does not place periodicals, reference books, or Interlibrary Loan materials on reserve.  


Students may access the course reserves by presenting their student i.d. card at the circulation desk.  Students must sign in to use the resources in the reserve room.  The professor designates the circulation policy of the resource.  Some resources are for library use only while others may be checked out daily or weekly.
