Course Reserves: Faculty Information

 Important Information About Course Reserves During COVID-19

  • Print Reserves, including the scanning and converting of physical materials, are suspended until library services resume on campus.
  • To request that online resources (articles and more) be added as an URL link on Moodle, faculty can use the new Course Reserves request form.

Libraries staff can assist you with print, media, and electronic reserves. Working with our staff ensures that course materials meet copyright and accessibility guidelines. Course Reserve services are available at all libraries.

Priority Deadlines

Material lists submitted by faculty are processed by library staff on a rolling first-come, first-served basis. Please submit lists by the priority deadline in order for materials to be available to students before the first day of the semester.
