Putting items on reserve is easy. Just fill out and print the Instructor Reserves Form and bring the material(s) to us. You can choose if you want items to be for library use only or for three-day checkout. You can also specify how long you want the item(s) to be on reserve. By default, items will be on reserve through the end of the current semester. Wheeler Library's materials can also be put on reserve for a limited amount of time.
We’re happy to put current or older editions of textbooks on reserve. However, we can no longer accept donations of old textbooks for the collection. Other donations will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis following our collection development guidelines.
We want to help you keep track of the items you have on reserve so that you can keep these materials current and relevant to the courses you are teaching each semester. We require that you come and pick up all of your reserve materials at the end of each semester so that you can evaluate them and decide if you want them on reserve for the next semester. We will send out a reminder via email toward the end of the semester.
Reserve requests will be available for student use within 24 hours upon our receipt of the items. DVDs cannot be duplicated for circulation. We no longer accept video cassettes. Please contact the library with any questions regarding the instructor reserves process.
