Placing Items on Reserve
Procedures for Placing Items on Reserve
Faculty members may use the forms listed below to request items for the library staff to retrieve from the collection and place on reserve for their classes. Up to eight items may be requested per form. The library will then retrieve the items, placing books and audio-visual materials directly on reserve, or in the case of articles or book chapters, making a copy of the requested citation and placing that copy on reserve. All other policies regarding course reserves will still apply.
Course Reserve Request Form: Books and Audio-Visual materials
Course Reserve Request Form: Copies of Articles and Book Chapters
If you prefer to retrieve library materials yourself, you may obtain a copy of the printed form at the Circulation Desk, or you may download a copy of the print form: Reserve Registration Form (MS Word).
During the week proceeding the beginning of a semester and during the first week of a semester, items placed on reserve will be available within three business days from the time the request is placed.
At other times during the semester, items will be available by the end of the next business day after the request is placed.
