Course Reserves

About Course Reserves

Course Reserves refer to items which have been selected by faculty members to supplement specific courses.

Students

Physical Reserves

Physical reserve items at the ASL are located behind the ASL circulation desk. If you need to access an item, please ask a staff member for assistance. Items can include library owned materials or items belonging to faculty members.

Check out periods are decided by faculty members. They can be one of the following periods of time:

  • 2 hours
  • 24 hours
  • 3 days
  • 7 days

Electronic Reserves

Electronic reserves are found exclusively through WebCampus. Please login to WebCampus and check your course page, or follow up with your instructor.

Faculty

Physical Reserves

  • Faculty members need to fill out a Reserves Information and Release Form.
  • Reserve Release Forms need to be filled out each semester regardless of whether the items were on reserve or courses were taught prior semesters.
  • Faculty members need to provide all non-library owned items to be placed on physical reserve.
  • Reserve items are typically processed within 48 hours, but during peak periods such as the beginning of the semester, processing could take longer. Recalled items can take an additional 2-3 weeks to receive and process.
  • Items are removed from the ASL Reserves Collection at the end of each semester. We are not responsible for patron lost or damaged items.
