Place materials behind the Circulation Desk that students can borrow for limited periods of time in the library, ensuring the books or articles on reserve will be available to everyone. Not only can you select books from the current collection for reserve use, but we also encourage you to donate copies of your course textbooks. This is a very popular service with the students and it is a great way, in addition to scheduling a library session, to get them into the library.
Do you need something that we don't have? You can recommend it for purchase or request an InterLibrary Loan (ILL), a service that especially supports professors in their scholarly research.
