Accessing Reserves

The library is no longer using ERes software for electronic reserves.

Electronic Reserves materials are located on student mylmu|CONNECT or Brightspace course pages. An LMU username and password is required.

Reserves in the library are checked out at the Circulation Desk on level 1. Unless otherwise noted, items on reserve are to be used within the library building only. Reserve items may include library-owned books, CDs, videos, or faculty members' personal books. By checking out a reserve item, you are agreeing to adhere to the library's Reserves Policy.

Placing Materials on Reserve

Electronic Reserves allows faculty to place articles, book excerpts, audio or video clips on mylmu|CONNECT or Brightspace course pages. To place materials on reserve, contact Zakiya Hasan at or (310) 338-6090. If you have questions about using mylmu|CONNECT or Brightspace, please contact the Faculty Innovation Center (FIC) at (310) 338-5731.

Reserves in the library may include physical copies of both library owned and personal books, library owned and faculty owned videos or CDs on reserve. More often, these have a 3 hour check-out period and are to be used in the library by your students. However, faculty may indicate an overnight check-out on specific items.

To place materials on Reserve, please use the Reserves Request form.

To request items be purchased to be placed on reserve, please use the Request a Book form and indicate that you want the book on reserve.

Please Note: Books requested through LINK+ or Interlibrary Loan cannot be placed on reserve. However, a limited amount of material from non-LMU books can be scanned and posted online in the student course pages.
