Putting Textbooks On Reserve

There are 3 ways to put a book on reserve:

  • If you have a personal copy, please fill out the Course Reserves Personal Copy Form and take it to the library circulation desk along with your book. Or, if you prefer, the circulation staff will give you a form to complete at the desk. Your book(s) will be returned to you after the end of each semester.
  • If you've ordered copies of the textbook from David Stuckey, please inform him that you would like x number of copies on reserve. David's team will place the copies with us and they will handle the paperwork. The book(s) will be returned to S544 after the end of the semester.
  • If our library owns a copy of the textbook that you would like to use for your class, please complete and submit the online form below. When we receive your online request, we will retrieve the library copy from our stacks. After the semester ends, the book(s) will be returned to the library's regular collection.

Putting Photocopies On Reserve

  • Please group solution sets, photocopies of articles, reprints and other loose material in a binder suitable for circulation and submit it to the circulation desk. The library does not provide binders. Complete a Course Reserve form at the desk.
  • Provide an adequate number of copies for the size of your class. The photocopies will be returned to you after the end of the semester.
