Course Reserves is a library service offered to instructors to ensure materials they want students to read are available.

How to Place Materials on Course Reserve

Faculty members may either add personal/departmental materials or materials from the library's collection to their course reading lists.
  • Use the Reserve Request Form to place personal materials and /or library owned materials on Reserve. (copies of this form available at the Circulation Desk)
  • Use the Reserve Request Removal Form to remove personal materials and/or library owned materials from Reserve. (copies of this form available at the Circulation Desk)
    • Circulation Email:
    • Denton Campus Only - Dana Leija, Reserves Specialist:


      Materials may be dropped off at the Circulation Desk or sent through campus mail.

      If you know the library does not own a title, check your department's internal procedures to see if approval by your department chair or Library Liaison is required for a purchase request.

        Please note: The library does NOT purchase textbooks. However, personal or department-owned textbooks can be placed on course reserve. The library assumes no responsibility for theft or mutilation of personal copies on reserve.
        **Materials for reserve CANNOT be obtained via Interlibrary Loan.**
