Course Reserves

Course Reserves is a library service that enables you to place instructional items used in your classes and allow students access to them typically within the library.  Most common, faculty will place copies of the required textbook on reserve.

  • Items outside of textbooks may need copyright clearance so we encourage faculty to speak with Lydia Johnson to gain more information on the process.  
  • Courses that use common textbooks for multiple sections can speak with their Division Chairs and Admins in placing textbooks on Reserve for all sections (EX:  all Psychology 101 sections use the same text, regardless of instructor) 
  • Students will need their MEIDs to use items within the Course Reserve Collection.   The Course Reserve Collection is physically located on the second floor of the Library.  

If you do not know whether or not your course has textbooks associated with it, please look at the Reserve Collection Title List.
