Guidelines for Placing Material on Library Reserve
If you would like all or most of the students in your class to read the same materials, it's a good idea to place the materials on reserve for the semester during which your class is taught. Reserve items are placed in a closed stack area and are given shorter checkout periods so that everyone in your class gets a chance to use them.

Bring print and non-print items for Reserve to the Circulation Desk during open library hours. Non-print items, such as videotapes or computer applications, may also be placed on reserve.

Recommendations for Purchase
Faculty members are encouraged to recommend book or non-print titles for the general collection. Usually, materials that reflect the college curriculum are given priority. Contact:
