Information about course reserves at the White Library

Course Reserves

  • Reserves are books and other material that faculty set aside for student use for a specific academic course.
  • 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.



Search for reserve material by Course Number (example: ENG 104) or Professor Name.  A list is also available at the library’s Circulation Desk.

  • Not all classes have textbooks on course reserve.  We may have a copy of your required book in the library's regular collection.  Search our catalog for your book title.  Let us know if you don't see your textbook or other required material on reserve or in the library.
  • Donate your textbooks to the library!  Simply drop them in the library's book drop (open 24/7) with a note saying they are donated books.


Faculty may place both library-owned and personal copies of books, textbooks, study guides, DVDs, etc., on library course reserve by filling out the ONLINE RESERVE FORM.

  • Books, DVDs and other print material:  Faculty-owned materials can be dropped off at the library’s Circulation Desk or sent through campus mail to Kami Moyer, library station 7.  Library staff will be happy to pull library-owned items from our shelves.
  • Articles: Articles available full-text or PDF in the library's databases can be added to course reserve, too.
