Course Reserves: Submit via Reserves Staff

NOTE: If you will be using electronic reserves (e-books, scanned articles, web links, or streaming video), you must request a Blackboard site for your course via the Faculty Center in order for those items to be accessed by your students through course reserves.

Email your list to reserves staff, or reactivate reserve items

We are happy to accept your reserve list via email. You can send us the Course Reserves Submission Form, or simply email a list or syllabus to reserves staff at your library, along with any special instructions, and we’ll take it from there.

If you have taught your course before and will be reusing some or all of your reserve items, the simplest option is to contact reserves staff at your preferred library and ask us to reactivate your course. Please specify the last time you taught the course and be sure to let us know if there are any items you would like to add or remove from your reserves list.

Note that depending on the number of new items being added to the course, emailing requests to reserves staff may require some extra time for processing, but we will be glad to assist you!  Alternately, you can add or reactivate items via Blackboard if you prefer.

Submit reserve items in person

For rush requests, instructor copies, or library items already in your possession, we recommend that you bring the item or items to reserves staff in person. Just bring the physical item along with a Course Reserves Submission Form, and drop them off with reserves staff at your preferred library. For just one or a handful of reserve items, a short submission slip can be used to save paper.
