Placing Materials on Reserve

A Reserve Form is required to process reserve materials. There are two ways to submit a Reserve Form course reserve request:

  • Use the online Reserve Form
  • Use a print Reserve Form available at the library's Circulation Desk

Course reserves are removed at the end of each semester and returned to faculty.  Statistics for reserve items are available, but must be requested when submitting the Reserve Form.
