You can request library materials or personal copies to be put on course reserve for the semester. We are moving toward electronic reserves where possible.  Please let us know in this form what you need to provide your students, and we will begin to work with you on solutions.

Please use this form to submit a request for an item to be placed on reserve: 

Request a LibGuide

If you'd like an online guide to help students navigate a research topic, resources, or concepts within your discipline, request an assignment, course, or subject guide for your students! Email, and a library staff or faculty will respond to discuss your thoughts.
