Reserve book submission policies

Faculty may request that books be placed in the reserve section of the library for short-term use by students. Normal check-out periods for reserve books are 2 hours, 1 day, 2 days, or 1 week. Books placed on reserve may either be from the library's collection or be personal copies that a faculty member loans to the library for that purpose.

All requests for placing a book on reserve must be submitted using the reserve submission form. Requests sent without the form will not be fulfilled. Personal loan copies of books should be brought to the circulation desk, attention of Hope Nisly.

Please allow 5 working days (M-F) for fulfillment of reserve book requests. We do not promise to fill any late rush requests.
