Placing items on reserve
Faculty may place items on in-library reserve using either of the following methods:
- Submit a list of reserve items along with: faculty name, course title, course #, loan period (see below for examples of loan periods) to the 1st floor Service Desk.
Submit your request to place items on in-library reserves using our form.
- Access Services staff process each course reserve request in the order received.
- Requested items are usually ready to circulate within five working days.
- Please submit each request as far in advance of each session's start as possible.
- Materials remain on reserve for the duration of the current semester.
