About Course Reserves
All requests must be made through our online request form. Requests must be made by faculty, staff, or TAs.
If you need to request something the library doesn’t own, use our library purchase request form. We cannot purchase textbooks.
PLEASE NOTE: IMPORTANT CHANGES TO COURSE RESERVES
- The library is no longer hosting e-reserves. Instead, you can upload or link all of your electronic readings in Canvas.
- If you need access to any e-reserves used in the past, email [email protected] with the professor’s name, course name and course number.
- When choosing materials, we highly encourage selecting electronic resources that are licensed by the library or are Open Educational Resources. See our Faculty Resources page for information about linking to materials in the library’s databases as well as links to the Open Textbook Libraryand the Directory of Open Access Journals.
- If you must use a specific text not available legally online, we recommend selecting 10 percent of the most important content and uploading it to canvas.
- Faculty members are responsible for complying with copyright law. Please refer to the Copyright and Fair Use guide for more information
Physical Reserve Copies
- Submit reserve requests via our online request form.
- If you need to request something the library doesn’t own, use our library purchase request form. We cannot purchase textbooks, but you may provide personal or department copies that we will place on reserve.
- You can drop off personal copies at the circulation desk up to one month before the start of the semester. We are not able to accept them further in advance.
- We continue to urge you to consider using e-books and other electronic resources instead of print materials. Please email [email protected] for help determining whether your course materials are available electronically.
