Material that is required or recommended for a class, or is otherwise in high demand, may be added to the reserves collection.  


  • Reserves Guidelines

    It generally takes staff  2 business days (Monday-Friday) to process reserves requests. Our busiest time is at the start of a term, and all requests are handled on a first come, first served basis. We expedite all requests, but ask that you submit them in a timely manner to allow time for processing.  Requests can be submitted online or in person at the Library, using the available forms.


  • Copyright Guidelines

    Material in the reserves collection must meet fair-use guidelines. Otherwise, instructors must seek copyright permission for any reserve material that does not fall under fair-use guidelines, or for material that will be used in subsequent semesters. 


  • Electronic Reserves (ERes) Submission Form

    Material from the electronic reserves collection is available online 24/7 and is password protected. This collection can also be linked to GaelLearn (Moodle). Material can be submitted using this form at least two business days (Monday-Friday) before it will be needed, possibly longer at the beginning of the term when we are busiest.
