Reserve Services

Traditional reserve lending service

Traditional reserve lending service includes textbooks, legacy media formats (DVDs, etc.), and equipment that are in high demand for course assignments and are loaned on an hourly basis to ensure access to many borrowers. Most reserve items must remain in the building while on loan. Materials on reserve are available from the Instructional Media Center (IMC) service counter during scheduled business hours.

What students need to know about reserve lending service

What faculty need to know about reserve lending service

  • Complete a reserve request form and deliver or transmit to IMC staff.
    Personal/departmental owned titles must accompany the request form. Only original works will be placed on reserve; copies are not accepted. Doctrine of first sale, part of U.S. copyright law, allows legally obtained original works to be lent without additional permission of the copyright owner. Items owned by the library/media center may be requested for reserve; staff will retrieve items requested from the stacks. Allow three to five days for processing. At the end of the semester for which items are designated for reserve, the personal/department items will be removed from the reserve collection and returned to the requestor at their designated campus address unless otherwise noted.

Electronic reserve service

The Instructional Media Center's E-Reserves system will transition to Blackboard integration over Summer 2017 and the electronic reserve service is discontinued effective August 2017. Faculty may contact the Distance and Online Learning Help Desk for Blackboard support. The library's online media specialist, in consultation with librarian liaisons, will assist faculty in locating and linking to articles, book chapters, and streaming media from research databases and online resources provided by the library and Instructional Media Center for integration in Blackboard.
