Course Reserves is now accepting requests for the Spring 2021 semester — submit your requests by January 25, 2021 through our intuitive Course Reserves tool.

We can…

  • Create OCR-accessible scans for digital access to book chapters and articles (per copyright guidelines).
  • Link to Libraries-owned ebooks, articles, and other resources in an easy-to-navigate toolbar. 
  • Circulate materials that you drop off at the Reader Services desk, including library books, personal materials, or department desk copies.
  • Submit purchase requests for items not owned by the Libraries. Purchase requests may not be available due to factors such as:
    • Enrollment of 10 or less students
    • Budget limits 
    • Availability through vendors

Course Reserves are accepted on a rolling basis. Purchase requests should be submitted at least one month before the first day of classes.
