Course Reserves (Faculty)

You can place course reading or study materials on reserve at the library. Students are only allowed to check them out for two hours at a time, giving everyone more access to the materials. These may be library-owned books or DVDs, or your own personal copy of a textbook, article, or DVD. If you would like to place an item on reserve, please click on the link to fill out the request and then bring the item to the Circulation Desk at Mahoney Library. You can also fill out a form in person, when dropping off the item, if you prefer.
