Reserves @ the Library

Accessing Reserves

Electronic Reserves materials are located on Brightspace. An LMU username and password are 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. By checking out a reserve item, you are agreeing to adhere to the library's Reserves Policy.

Placing Materials on Reserve

Electronic Reserves allow faculty members to place articles, book excerpts, audio, and video clips on Brightspace. To place electronic materials on reserve, contact Zakiya Hasan at or 310.338.6090. If you have questions about using Brightspace, please contact your Instructional Technology Assistant.

Reserve items may include physical copies of books, videos, and CDs from the library's collection or the faculty member's personal collection. The loan period of reserve items varies, but is generally one hour, three hours, one day, or three days. To place physical materials on reserve, please use the Reserves Request form

If the library has, or can acquire, a multi-user e-book copy of the title(s), we will add this to Course Reserves in Brightspace. Learn more about our Course Adopted Texts Ebook Initiative.

To request items to be purchased and 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.
