Course Reserves

Course Reserves

The purpose of Foley Library’s reserve services is to support faculty and students by managing limited circulation for items assigned or recommended in courses. This allows increased access to single items across all the students registered in a course. The items may be library-owned resources or personal copies from faculty.








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

Print Reserves

Faculty may place personal or library-owned copies of books and media materials on print reserve. Items must be in copyright compliance. Print reserves are located behind the Check Out Desk, and may be checked out by students for a set number of hours or days as determined by faculty.

Purchasing or licensing materials, eBooks, or streaming films for course support

Foley Library requests that faculty who need library-provided materials to be purchased or licensed to support their courses submit those requests directly to their Liaison Librarian in accordance with the listed course reserve deadlines.
