Faculty, Get Your Items on Course Reserve


Faculty, if you need library items placed on course reserve please submit this form. Provide as much detail for each item that you can (Title, Author, Publication Date, Call Number). The more information you provide, the easier it will be for us to retrieve the item for you.

If you would like an item on reserve that the library does not currently own, please contact your library liaison to facilitate that purchase. Please let your liaison know that you need the item for reserve and for what class it is for. As soon as we receive the item it will be processed and put on course reserve.

As per library policy, we do not purchase textbooks. If you would like a personal copy of a textbook on reserve, please bring it to the Library Service Desk and fill out a paper reserve request form. Due to copyright restrictions, all Course Reserves will be removed at the end of every semester.
