Reserve Policy

   
Placing Materials on Reserve:
 

  • A Reserve Request Form is needed for each item.
  • Reserve requests for items in the library's collection should be submitted at least one week before they will be needed. Items not in the library's collection should be requested even earlier, as it may take several weeks to order and process. 
  • Reserve requests need to be submitted and updated each semester.
  • For information on adding, or linking, material to your Moodle Course click here.
  • Personal copies are no longer being accepted. If you wish to place a book or DVD on course reserve that the library does not own, you can either 1) request that we purchase a copy using the purchase request form, or 2) donate your personal copy to the library.
