As faculty prepare for fall classes, please be aware that the library has made changes to the Reserves process. The new process is the same for both E-Reserves and physical Reserves. This process will simplify faculty requests and provide one single, personalized access point to reserve materials for faculty and students.
Changes of Note:
Reserve requests should be submitted three weeks prior to the start of the semester to ensure items are available for students by the start of classes.
There is a new form that faculty will need to fill out to request an item be placed on Reserve.
Faculty will need to place materials on Reserve on a semester-by-semester basis. There will no longer be permanent reserves.
Reserve items will be removed two weeks after the end of semester exams. Faculty owned materials will be returned via interoffice mail, if not previously collected.
If you have questions about Reserves or how to make an item available to your students, contact Laura.
Library Reserves enable faculty to share both library material, and personally owned material, with students in a controlled lending environment. Limited loan periods ensure students enrolled in a particular course have access to high demand materials. Physical materials are located behind the library service desk and digital materials are located on a course specific webpage that can be embedded into BlackBoard, see instructions below.

Reserve requests can be submitted online or via the form below.
