How to place items on Reserve

  3. Please give first and last name to avoid confusion.
  4. Include department, course name and number. Items cannot be processed without this information.

General Comments

Please allow for processing time when sending over material. Many items are received the first weeks of each semester, so it may take 4 or 5 days before everything gets processed. Requests are handled on a first come, first served basis within regular business hours. Throughout the rest of the semester, items are usually processed within the next two working days.

Most items on Reserve have a loan period of two hours during which the patron may use the material in the library. Reserve materials are not allowed to leave the building unless specified by the professor. If the professor wishes for a loan period other than the regular two hour period, they should specify that on the Reserve form.

E-reserves are not available. Instructors are encouraged to use D2L. 

Textbooks are put on Reserve at the discretion of the Textbook Center located in Doudna Hall. When the supply of a current textbook runs low, the Textbook Center will place the last two copies on Reserve. Not all textbooks are forwarded to the library by the Textbook Center.

The library reserves the right to remove materials that have been inactive for two years.
