What can be put on Reserve?
- The Reserve Service will purchase most items requested for Reserve if the Library does not own a copy.
- We may not be able to purchase:
- very expensive works
- multiple copies of multi-volume sets
- out-of-print items
- Once the purchased item has been received in the Reserve Department, an e-mail will be sent to the requester indicating the item has been received and placed on Reserve for the course.
- The Reserve Office will accept personally-owned books and videos from faculty and staff in accordance with copyright restrictions.
- Items borrowed from other libraries cannot be placed on Reserve unless the professor obtains written permission from the loaning institution.
