Angelo & Jennette Volpe Library

Course reserves are supplemental materials for students to use.  All reserve materials are included in the library catalog and must be requested for checkout/use at the library Front Desk.

How to Put Materials on Course Reserves

  1. Read the Course Reserves Policies for details, and contact Charlene McClain with any questions.
  2. Complete the Course Reserves Form, one form per course.
  3. If all reserve items are library-owned, your work is done. If any of the items are personally owned, please bring them to the Front Desk with a note. Write "COURSE RESERVES" on the note and include your name and the course.
  4. The items will be placed on reserve within three business days and you will receive email confirmation once the items have been processed and are ready for use.
  5. At the end of each semester, usage data will be emailed to you.

What to Put on Your Syllabus

If you are putting items on reserve, it is helpful to include a paragraph in your syllabus similar to the one below:

There are supplemental materials on course reserves in the library.  To use these items, go to the library Front Desk, ask for the specific item, and give them my last name.  You will be able to check this item out with an EagleCard for one of the following durations, depending on the item:

  • 2-hours - May not be taken from the building. May be renewed at the Front Desk if no one is waiting for it.
  • 4-days - May be taken from the building. May be renewed at the Front Desk.
