Reserves

Textbook Procedures and Protocols

Last Update: February 19, 2014
  • Textbook reserve items are acquired through loans, donations, and purchases. All materials placed in our textbook reserve collection are processed to lengthen their shelf life. Loans from faculty and departments are housed at will. The library has a very small Textbook Reserve acquisitions budget. Purchases are made in accordance with our collection development guidelines.

  • If you are a faculty member who would like to place an item in our Textbook Reserve collection, please fill out this form and bring it and the book to the Circulation Desk of the library. Please allow at least 24 hours for these items to be processed.
  • All items are processed on a first come, first served basis. Due to the volume of items we receive at the beginning of the semester, it is advised that you submit materials as early as possible to ensure that they are available to your students when needed.
  • Please see our Circulation Procedures and Protocols for details about fines.
