Students may borrow physical course reserve materials from the Library Service Desk on the 1st floor while the library building is open.
During the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters, Reserve materials will be provided in electronic format whenever possible. Some electronic texts assigned by your instructor may be posted directly to your Canvas course website. Students can also search the Course Books at the Library for electronic library items assigned by instructors. If you are faculty interested in requesting or removing course reserve materials, please submit a Course Reserve Request Form.
Course Reserves are course-related materials such as books or DVDs selected by instructors and made available for students to borrow from the University Library. The reserve collection includes materials that supplement and enhance coursework, and is not intended to be used as a textbook repository. We encourage instructors to submit personal copies of materials, such as textbooks, they would like students to have access to. Course Reserve materials are non-requestable (meaning first come-first served), and are considered in-demand, high-use items.
Reserve items have shorter loan periods to facilitate sharing among students. Loan periods are assigned by instructors, and include 2-hours, 24-hours, 3-days, and 7-days. Due to demand, reserve items are located behind the 1st floor Library Service Desk, and will be retrieved by library staff upon request.
Reserve materials may be:
Library owned print or ebooks and other media such as DVDs and CDs
Instructor owned print books and other media such as DVDs and CDs
