Course Reserves

To Search for Items on Reserve

To find items your professor put on reserve, search the library catalog; you can search by course or instructor name.

Course reserves are to be used in the library only; if you are unable to find an item via search, please ask at the library circulation desk for the materials.

To Place Items on Reserve

Please bring items for Reserve (personal and/or library owned) to Meg Leister, Public Services Assistant, at the Circulation Desk.

Item will be available to students for a 4 hour period, in-library-use only.

Faculty members may remove/borrow items from their shelves only. They may not remove/borrow items from other Reserve Shelves, unless they can provide documented permission (e.g. note or email) from the other faculty member to remove/borrow the item. They can also email Meg Leister (leisterm@philau.edu) to give permission.

At the beginning of each semester, faculty members are asked to indicate if they would like their items to remain on Reserve or be returned to the library stacks. If there is no response, all items will be returned to the stacks and every attempt will be made to return personal items.

All personal copies will be bar coded, security taped and will have a pocket attached.

Placement on Reserve of books obtained through Interlibrary Loan is prohibited.

Gutman Library cannot guarantee the safety and welfare of personal items.
