Cameron Library Course Reserve Guidelines (For instructors)


Instructors or departments may place physical items on Course Reserve with a limited loan period in order to enable a maximum number of students to use them. Items may include library books, photocopies of journal articles and book chapters, videotapes, CDs, textbooks, personal books, copies of personal lecture notes, exams, bibliographies, syllabi, or other items.

Place Items on Reserve

Instructors should complete a Reserve Request Form and submit items to the Circulation Department for processing. Please include complete bibliographic information for all copied personal materials!

For library-owned items , either complete an Online Reserve Request Form or submit a print copy of this form to the Circulation Department.     

For non-library-owned items , instructors should download a form or obtain one from the Library, and submit the completed form to the Circulation Department together with items to be put on reserve. Upon request, library staff members will be happy to pick up materials from campus offices.
