Faculty Guide to the Library: Reserve/Textbooks

A guide to library services for faculty

Putting Materials on Reserve

Should you wish to make materials available to your students on a limited loan basis, please use the library’s reserve materials service at the Circulation Desk. Materials placed on reserve, either items owned by the library or your own materials, are shelved behind the Circulation Desk and are filed by discipline. You may designate the limited loan period of "Two Hours/Library Use Only," "Overnight," or "One Week." Items to be placed on reserve must be given to the Circulation staff two working days in advance of being made available to students. At the end of each semester, please evaluate your reserve materials and remove unused or unnecessary items. Library reference books and periodicals are not placed on reserve status as, by their nature, they can only be used in the library.
