A Library Course Reserve Form (found in the box to the right) should be submitted at least one week prior to the time an assignment is announced to the students. The period of time required for processing a reserve list varies according to the volume of reserve requests, availability of materials, and delays in retrieving books on loan. Please keep in mind that processing delays increase during the beginning of each semester when incoming volume is high. Lists will be processed in the order in which they are received.
Please do not request more than 20 items for a course without consulting the reserve staff prior to submission of the list. Lists should be limited to required readings. Suggested or recommended reading lists and/or resource materials are used infrequently. Students benefit more from direct loan of suggested readings from the general collection for the regular 4-week loan period.

For physical materials, you may bring the form to the library with the accompanying materials.
If you require only electronic materials, you may submit via email or bring to the library. If you submit via email, be sure to sign the form before you scan (PDF file preferable).
If you have an extra copy of a required textbook for your class(es), please consider putting them on course reserve for your students. This is a great benefit for your students, especially when they are waiting on refund checks to buy textbooks.
