Reserves Request Form

During the first few weeks of the semester, processing may be delayed so please plan ahead. Reserve requests should be received at least 10 working days (2 weeks) in advance of student needs.

All items will be available per semester. A separate request form is required for each course.
Library owned items will be returned to the library’s shelves.
Personal items will be returned at the end of the semester.

Submissions must include the information in the form below or we cannot guarantee processing.

If the library does not own the book(s) that you are requesting, you may request it by using the Request A Book Form. Additionally, if you are requesting a film that we do not own, please use the Media Request Form. If it fits the parameters of our collection development policy, we will do our best to purchase it as soon as possible for your course reserves. We will be in touch with you regarding the availability of this item.
