Course Reserves Policy

The library offers an in-house library reserve area behind the Circulation Desk for faculty who want to provide supplementary and/or required readings for their students.

  • All materials must be submitted with the completed Course Reserve Form to the Circulation Desk.
  • Loan periods for reserve materials are determined by the faculty. The main loan period options are Library Use Only, 1-Day, and 7-Day.
  • Faculty may place materials belonging to the library and/or personal copies on reserve.
  • Materials to be placed on reserve should be submitted at least 24 hours in advance of student demand.
  • Articles found in full-text through one of our electronic databases will be added to the appropriate instructor tab in our reserves LibGuide. If a hard copy is supplied, it will be returned to the department or recycled.
  • Photocopied materials or articles not found in full-text will be scanned and added to the appropriate instructor tab in our reserves LibGuide. If a hard copy is supplied, it will be returned to the department or recycled.
  • Obtaining copyright permission for reserve copies is the responsibility of the instructor.
  • All course reserve materials are maintained through the Course Reserves discovery module, and may be retrieved by the instructor’s name (click the Search for drop down and select Instructor Name).
