Professors and instructors place materials such as books and articles on Course Reserve to help ensure that many students (sometimes an entire class) may access and read the same materials within a short period of time.
To enable this, the loan periods of Course Reserve items are much shorter than the loan period for regular library books.
Items placed on course reserve can be obtained at the Access Services Desk and borrowed for short periods of time.
Loan periods for Course Reserve materials range from 30 minutes to 3 days. Be sure to check when your items are due to avoid fines!
To place item(s) on Course Reserve, contact Access Services or simply complete the following online form (faculty and instructors only):
