You may download and print our reserves request form ahead of time, although we maintain this form as a hard copy at the Circulation desk for you as well.

We process all reserve materials into our Sierra catalog system to enable students to more easily identify and borrow through the Library. Students and staff will be able use the library catalog to search Course Reserve materials by professor's name or course code. We also attach barcodes to reserve materials to facilitate borrowing and use within the Library.
