Course Reserves

As of May 3rd, we have reimplemented our 2-hour loan period for items in our Course Reserve collection. However, due to the number of hybrid or online only classes this summer, library staff will be accepting requests to digitize specific chapters or sections of textbooks in our Course Reserve collection (see more information in the Copyright During a Pandemic section below). Please note that due to the creative nature of these works we are unable to digitize novels and popular press. See the Course Reserve webpage for complete information on this temporary process.

The digitization of the course reserves will cease at the end of the Summer 2021 term.

Please see the Library’s full Schedule of Operations for additional information.
