Placing Materials on Reserve

Instructors must submit a completed reserve request for the Falk Library main desk.  

Forms should be submitted at least three weeks prior to the date the materials will be needed. Without three weeks notice, availability of materials cannot be guaranteed.

HSLS materials and personal copies of books and articles (up to five copies of each book/article) may be placed on reserve.

At the end of term, HSLS materials will be re-shelved in the general collection; instructors must pick up personal copies.

Electronic Reserves

Instructors may include materials in electronic form on their course reserve lists.
Instructors are required to place on reserve at least one print copy of each electronic reserve item.
