Materials may be placed on faculty reserve at the request of instructors as supplemental course information. By placing an item on reserve, an instructor limits the loan period, ensuring that all students enrolled in a particular course have access to the reserved material. Materials have reserve status only during the semester in which the designated course is being taught.
The library does not otherwise limit access to reserve materials; any current student, staff, or faculty may check out them out.
Materials placed on reserve may be part of the library’s holdings or may be items personally owned by the instructor, at their discretion.
Note: Course Reserves differ from the Textbook Collection and the Recommend a Purchase service. If you are unsure of the best way to make material available to your students, contact the library.
Placing Materials on Reserve

The library is not responsible for patron damage to personal items placed on reserve.
