Bortz Library's course reserve services allow faculty to set aside books, films, recordings, manuscripts, and other materials for a particular academic class. These materials are often required or recommended for the class, and students in the class may check them out at any time. Bortz Library's reserve materials are located on the main floor of the Library (the second floor), behind the Circulation Desk.
Please note: reserve items are loaned according to an instructor's specifications, and reserve materials must be used inside the library building. The typical checkout time for reserve items is 2-3 hours, in-library use only.
To check out course reserves, just visit the main Circulation Desk today and ask for an item by faculty or course name and item title.
In order to promote social distancing, faculty are asked to submit requests to place items on reserve for their class by filling out the electronic Course Reserves Form (next tab). Once the form has been submitted, library staff will pull items and place them on reserve for your course.
If you have any personal items that you would like to place on reserve for your class, please contact the Research and Instruction Librarian, Kate Lynch, to arrange a way to drop them off at the library (firstname.lastname@example.org, 434 - 223 - 6197).
Please allow 48 hours for us to process your request. We cannot always accommodate same-day requests. Interlibrary loan items may not be placed on reserve.
