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 Dwight Marvin Library first floor service desk during scheduled business hours.

  • Complete a reserve request form and deliver or transmit to library 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.
