Reserve lists are limited to 30 items per course. Multiple copies and volumes count toward this total. (See also: Copyright Restrictions for Reserve).
Persons requesting that items be placed on Reserve must have a patron record that is in good standing in the library's database. To ensure that materials will be processed and available for use, lists must be submitted at least seven days prior to the date students will first need access to them. Processing will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. If any item is unavailable for processing, notification will be made via e-mail or voicemail.
The Library staff will pull library-owned materials as time allows. However, processing will be completed sooner if the person submitting the list pulls the items and brings them to the Circulation Desk along with the completed Reserve Materials List form. Personal copies should also be brought in with the list. Personal items may sustain damage or loss. A bar code and spine label will be affixed to items placed on reserve, which in most cases cannot be removed without damage to the item. Reserve materials cannot be restricted to Building Use Only.
