Reserve an Item for a Course


General Guidelines

Use the following guidelines to place materials on reserve in the MCL. In addition, use the specific guidelines for reserving books and journal articles.

  • Use the MCL Course Reserve Request Form when submitting reserve material. This form is also available from the MCL User Services desk on the first floor of the Library.
  • Put only REQUIRED readings on reserve and provide your students with a bibliography of optional readings, which they can obtain on their own.
  • Bring reserve material to the MCL 3 to 4 weeks in advance to give us time to do the necessary reporting and processing.
  • Do not submit more copies than absolutely necessary. If you wish to submit multiple copies, we recommend no more than one copy for every 15 students.
  • The MCL will obtain copyright permission for print material placed on reserve in the MCL.

For further information on reserve guidelines and copyright information contact Genia Kempster.
