The course reserve program is only intended for use on materials that the library already owns or personal copies of materials provided by faculty or departments. Requests to purchase materials should go through your department liaison. Due to both staffing and copyright limitations, we cannot digitize an entire book for distribution.

In this very unusual time, the library is doing all we can to support students and faculty. However, due to current limitations on sharing physical materials, we are unable to offer access to course reserves in the traditional manner this semester. Instead, we are offering two options with which faculty can provide course reserve content to students. Please review the options below and choose which will work better for your course carefully. We appreciate your attention to this process and look forward to assisting you in any way we can.
If you can identify specific portions of print material, the library can digitize those selections and provide you with the digitized files. You can then distribute those files to your students via a password protected platform of your choosing such as PLATO or University email. This option will allow your students immediate access to the materials.
If you would normally have a textbook or other text on course reserve but don’t have specific portions you can identify, we can put the item on reserve in the library. We can then digitize portions by request for students at the time of need. Please keep in mind that students will need to plan ahead as requests may take several days to process.
All professors wishing to place items on Reserve should fill out the following form and submit it. If you have questions or wish to follow up on a request, please email email@example.com
