Reserve guidelines

Reserve materials are supplemental materials required for a course; a wide variety of materials may be placed on reserve.  These materials may be personal copies or library copies. Materials owned by other libraries may not be placed on reserve.

The library provides a controlled area behind the circulation desk for hardcopy materials and media, and loans them for designated time periods to students in a specific course.

e-Reserve guidelines

The library provides an electronic reserve system through Canvas, the college’s course management system, which delivers scanned readings (articles or book chapters) to students in a particular course for reading and printing.

To add articles or book chapters to your Canvas course, fill out the Reserve Form above then Public Services Librarian Andrea Boothby Rice will add the materials to your Canvas course.

Please allow 72 business hours for processing, especially if scanning is required.
