Faculty Course Reserves Request
Note: A new Course Reserve Request form must be filled out with each new semester.
Course Reserve Materials
Note: Temporary barcodes and labels will be attached to all hard-copy reserve items (including instructor-owned materials). The library is not responsible for any damage incurred by students during use.
Each semester the Library will announce a date at which we will begin accepting reserve materials for the upcoming semester. The Library will also publish a “guarantee date” for those reserves. Faculty who submit their material by or on the guarantee date will have their materials processed and available for their students on the first day of class. Materials submitted after the guarantee date are processed and published on a first-come, first-served basis.
Materials are only kept on reserve for one semester at a time. All reserve items, hard-copy or electronic, will be removed at the end of each semester. No reserve items will be held from semester to semester.
Original material submitted to electronic reserves and scanned will be returned to the instructor immediately after their course material has been scanned and processed. Material that is left on reserve as hard copy will be returned as soon as the semester has ended.
The Library Reserves Team will notify you by email when your reserves are processed. You will receive a brief description of how to access the system. Instructors with electronic material will be provided their password.
Materials not owned by the Library or instructor can be RUSH ordered through the appropriate Subject Librarian, but timely acquisition cannot be guaranteed. Allow at least six weeks for the purchase of new items. See our list of subject librarians to place this type of order.
