How to place materials on reserve

Reserve request form

Instructors can place Library materials, personal textbooks, and other items on reserve for a class:

  • Use the online request form or bring items to the Business Library.
  • If you bring material to the Library, provide your name and the course number.
  • Loan times are usually 2 hours. However, 1- or 3-day loans are available.
  • If needed, material can be restricted to use only within the Library.
  • Submit items early! At busy times, reserves may take up to 10 days to process.
  • Materials the Library orders may require 4 to 6 weeks to arrive.

Note that personal materials may be damaged by heavy use, are stolen occasionally, or may not be returned by a borrower. The Libraries cannot replace missing or damaged personal materials.


It is the instructor's responsibility to find out if materials fall within the "fair use" definition for teaching:
