The library offers course reserve services for faculty. Items will not be put on reserve until a course syllabus is submitted to the library. Whenever possible, materials will be scanned into electronic format. The library is not responsible for any loss or damage to personal items submitted for reserves.
Access to a list of your reserve items, including electronic reserves, is available through the online catalog. Search by course or instructor name. All access to course material will be de-linked at the end of each semester.
Two types of reserve materials:
- Traditional reserves consist of physical copies of items. These may be library owned or faculty owned items.
- Electronic reserves consist of items accessed via the online catalog, including links to articles in any of the library's full-text databases.
Policy and procedure
A form for placing items on reserve is available at the circulation desk along with additional information about the procedures. Please allow up to 5 days at the beginning of semesters and 3 days during the semester to add material to the database.
To place (submit) items on traditional and/or electronic reserve, faculty must bring all items and a course syllabus to the circulation desk.
Any photocopied materials must be clear, legible, contain no highlighting or black margins, include a complete citation on a separate page and adhere to copyright guidelines.
To comply with copyright guidelines, the library will place one copy of an item per 20 students on traditional reserve.
Periodical articles that are available via library databases will not be scanned. Instead the library will supply a link to the article.
