The library offers physical reserves and electronic reserves services for faculty to supplement their classroom instruction. Items placed on physical reserves are made available for checkout at the Main Service Desk.
Items placed on e-reserve are available via links on the library website.
Enter the course abbreviation and number for your class (e.g. ENGL 1064) to find the materials your instructor has placed on reserve. These materials are available for check-out at the circulation desk for anywhere from two hours to seven days, depending on your teacher’s wishes.
If you are having trouble with the password to access the list of items on reserve, you must contact your instructor, not the library.
If you are having trouble with your password to access the articles and resources, view these instructions, or contact the library.
To put materials on reserve, fill out the appropriate form for the type of reserve you desire:
Physical Reserve items (books, DVDs, etc) to be kept at the library
Electronic Reserve items (articles, chapter excerpts, etc) to view online
Please complete the forms as completely as possible. Call numbers, links, and citations are all excellent pieces of information for us to find exactly what you need for your students. You must also submit your syllabus for the semester. If you would like to keep the same materials on reserve for multiple semesters, the form must be submitted each semester.
Submit your syllabus, any personal copies of your materials, and your paperwork. You can do this several ways:
- Bring everything to the Main Service Desk
- Email materials to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Fax your materials to 402.554.3215
Please allow two business days for your request to be processed, longer if we have to request copyright clearance.
