Faculty can place items on Reserve in the library to make them available to students any time the library is open. The Library makes an effort to ensure that their use is secure and equitable. Personal items can be accepted for Reserve or you may use items Ely Library already owns.
Reserve items should NOT be used as a substitute for your students purchasing individual textbooks for your course.
Reserve items used by students never leave the library without an arrangement between the faculty member and the Head of Access Services. Professors may take any Reserve items out for use in their own classes at any time.
