Circulation Services: Reserves


Faculty may put material on reserve any time during the semester. Items are shelved under the name of the first person to request the item and cross reference is placed in the database. The following types of materials are accepted for reserve: cataloged books, manuscripts, photocopied material, computer printouts, tapes, microforms, maps, collections of materials for classroom study, and other materials for classroom study or college use. When the library accepts photo duplicated portions of copyrighted materials, the staff will follow the provisions of the US copyright laws. Personal copies of books and other materials may also be accepted for reserve, but with the understanding that these materials are placed on reserve at the owner’s risk and will be processed for use by students and possibly other library patrons.  Please see the Reserve Policy for more details.

See the Circulation Department our check with your professor to find out what reserves are available online or on hard copy for you.
