Print Reserves Policy

Policy Summary

Print reserves policy for Foley Library.

Policy

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.

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.

If the library does not own an item that you would like to place on reserve, you may request a purchase using the Purchase Request Form.

Any items placed on reserve will automatically be added to the course Reading List. Reading Lists may be accessed online through Blackboard or via the Reading Lists by Leganto platform. For more information, please see our Electronic Reserves Policy.

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.
