Information about course reserves at the White Library

Course Reserves

  • Course reserves are books and other material that faculty set aside for student use.
  • Course reserves may include items that are in high demand or required for class, such as textbooks, commentaries, or films.
  • Reserve items may also include supplemental course material such as study guides, practice exams, or additional readings.  
  • Material that is on reserve usually has a shorter loan period (3 hours, 24 hours, 3 days, or 7 days) and may be restricted to use in the library.


STUDENTS: Search for reserve material by Course Number (example: COR 400) or Professor Name.  A list is also available at the library’s Circulation Desk.


FACULTY: Faculty may place both library-owned and personal copies of books, textbooks, study guides, DVDs, etc., on library course reserve.

Reserve materials should be taken to the library’s Circulation Desk along with a completed course reserve form. Blank request forms are available at the Circulation Desk or ONLINE HERE.
