Reserves & eReserves

Course Reserves

Course reserves are materials such as books, videos, articles, or course packs that have been set aside at the request of a professor so that all members of a class have an opportunity to use them.

  • Reserve materials are usually loaned for a very limited period of time (e.g. 2 hours, 1 day, or 3 days). Items may be restricted to in-library use only.
  • You can check to see what items are on reserve for your class using the Course Reserves search. All reserve materials may be obtained at the Library Services Desk.


eReserves are digitized reserve materials (usually journal articles or excerpts from a book) and can be accessed through your Blackboard course site.
