Print Reserves Policy

Policy Summary

Print reserves policy for Foley Library.


Gonzaga faculty, staff, or official University organization (including committees and clubs) may place library-owned or personal print materials on reserve to support classroom assignments, coursework, and organizations.

All material placed on reserve must comply with University copyright policy.

Placing Print Items on Reserve

To place Gonzaga-owned items on reserve, fill out a Reserves Request Form, either online or in person at the Check Out Desk.

Deadlines for submitting library-owned course reserves requests are as follows, requests submitted after these dates are not guaranteed to be available or ready at the start of the semester:

Fall Semester April 15th preceding
Spring Semester October 15th preceding
Summer Term April 15th preceding

Please allow at least 24 hours for the library to process your reserve item. During peak reserve times (beginning of the term), processing may take up to 3 days.

Personal Items on Reserve

Personal (non-library) reserve items may be put on reserve, with the following considerations:

Items are subject to minimal library processing, including affixing barcodes, tattle-tape, and call numbers.

Personal materials may be placed on reserve with the understanding that loss or damage is a possibility, and the library will not be responsible in case of such an occurrence.

Loan Policy for Reserve Items

Reserve materials are kept behind the Check Out Desk.

Current Gonzaga students, faculty, and staff are allowed to check out reserve items for a set number of hours or days.  

Reserve items have various check out periods, ranging from 1 hour to 3 days. Check out periods are set by the user placing the item on reserve.

No overdue fines are collected for reserve items. Replacement costs may be charged for lost or damaged Gonzaga-owned items.

Reserve items may not be renewed.
