Course Reserve Requests

The Library's Course Reserves service lets you make print and electronic items available to your students, guaranteeing that students have access to a book or an article. We can help you in this by scanning print items into a searchable PDF or by purchasing a book for you to make available to students.

Physical Course Reserves

To request that print copies of course reserves be made available in the Library, please download, fill out, and bring the form to the Library with the items that you would like placed on reserve. You can place items on reserve for:

  • 2 hour library use only
  • 24 hours
  • 72 hours
  • 7 days

Electronic Course Reserves

Electronic course reserves are for digital items available to students 24/7 and password controlled. We can add an eBook from our collection, scan portions of a print book,  or link to an item in one of our databases. 

Scanning Request

Request a portion of a book, or other print item,  be scanned as a searchable PDF and added to a virtual folder for your class to use.

Purchase Request

Request an electronic or print copy of a book be purchased and placed on reserve


If you have questions about course reserves, please contact Diana Duran ( or 415-485-3251
