Course Reserves - for Faculty

Course Reserve Materials

Library, personal, or department-owned copies of legally-acquired multimedia materials may also be placed on course reserve in the Library. The Library adheres strictly to current copyright law governing multimedia copying, distribution and use. Unauthorized copies of material (books, television shows, DVDs, etc.) are not allowed.

Place Materials on Course Reserve

  1. Reserve Request Form should be completed online for each item. 
  2. Bring your faculty-owned books/DVDs to the 2nd Floor Plaza Circulation Desk or send the item(s) via campus mail to Mailstop 25-2, indicate that they're faculty/department-owned books to be placed on course reserve.

Note: On each book, please add a slip of paper or a post-it with:

  • Faculty first and last name
  • Class (Example: ANTH& 100)
  • Online form has been filled out

3. Please allow up to 2 workdays for processing of faculty-owned course reserve items. We will give you an estimated time that your items will be ready. You will receive email confirmation when the items are available for your students. 

4. We ask that you keep the processing time in mind when you inform students when the material(s) will be available for checkout. 


If you have any questions regarding course reserves, email the Circulation Services department or call 206-592-3234.
