Reserves Policy

Reserve request lists should be received at least 5 working days in advance of assignments to ensure that materials will be ready. This processing period is especially critical during the first six weeks of each semester. Request lists are date/time stamped as received and processed strictly on a first come, first serve basis.  The library is open during the month of August and this is the best time to submit reserve requests to guarantee availability by the beginning of the academic year.

Reserve materials may be checked out for two hours and may only be used in the library.

Instructors' personal copies of materials may be placed on reserve in place of, or in addition to, library owned materials.

All reserve will be removed off the reserve list and re-shelved in the general collection or returned to the faculty member at the end of each academic year. No reserves will be held over the summer if the faculty member is not teaching during that time.

Electronic Reserves

Electronic reserves are now available by request through the LibGuide eReserve system.  E-Reserves are hosted for one semester and are then taken offline.  All eReserves are password protected and accessible only to students who have the access information. They are not in the public domain. 

As with print materials, eReserve electronic content must be received at least 5 working days in advance of assignments to ensure that materials will be ready.
