How to Place Materials on Course ReserveFaculty members may either add personal/departmental materials or materials from the library's collection to their course reading lists.
Use the Course Reserves Request Form 1 for personal materials. (This form is also available to fill out in person at the Circulation Desk.) Use the Course Reserves Request Form 2 for library-owned materials.
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.**
- Requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Please submit reading lists 2-3 weeks before the beginning of each semester. Later requests may take additional days to process.
- Library-owned materials may be checked out at the time of request. These will be recalled and you will be notified when the material is placed on reserve.
- When a reading list expires (usually at the end of a semster), materials will be returned. You may pick up any personal copies earlier or request library-owned items to come off reserve and be re-shelved in the general collection.
If you have any questions, please contact the Denton Circulation Department:
