Course Reserves

Map collection, library south 3rd floor

Course reserves are supplementary materials (books in print, DVDs, and other physical items) provided by faculty or the Library in support of course curricula.  These materials are separated from the general collection and have restricted terms of use.

Student Information

Students may access reserve lists in their TITANium courses or may search the list directly from the Library Catalog. To check out a course reserve, provide the call number and your TitanCard at the Circulation Desk (1st floor, Library North).

Students may borrow up to three course reserves (including one feature-length movie) at one time. Reserve items may not generally be renewed, and borrowers must wait at least one hour or one day (depending on the loan period) before checking out the same item again.

Instructor Information

Instructors may submit reserve requests via our online Course Reserves Request Form (below). Requests may include items from the Library’s collections, personal copies to be provided, or recommendations for purchase (within acquisition guidelines and budgetary limits). Personal copies must fall within fair-use exemptions to copyright law. See: Fair Use Checklist (PDF).

Electronic materials (articles, e-books, audiovisual clips, etc.) can be uploaded or linked directly to TITANium. The Faculty Development Center provides instruction on using TITANium’s features, and the Academic Technology Center can provide hands-on assistance.

Please review our Course Reserves Guidelines for the types of material that may be placed on reserve.
