Place Materials on Course Reserve

Traditional Course Reserves

Books listed as "required" on the fall or spring book lists will automatically be placed on course reserve shelves for your class and will be available for your students to check out for a 2-hour period. You may designate any other Law Library books, personal copies of books, CDs, or DVDs to be placed on course reserve as well.

Electronic Reserves

The Law Library now has a course page on TWEN for electronic reserves. Every faculty member with electronic reserve items will have a page; every course taught (with electronic reserve holdings) will have a folder on that page.

Going forward, all materials amenable to electronic format, such as articles or cases, will now be placed on the Law Library TWEN site. We will no longer keep hard copies of these materials in the library.

If you would like to place an item on course reserve, submit an electronic formor contact or your library liaison. Please make sure to provide the following information:

  • Name and number of the course;
  • Term(s) the course is offered (e.g., fall, spring, both);
  • Length of time the materials should be on course reserve;
  • If you are placing personal books, CDs, or DVDs on reserve, please indicate how long you would like your students to be able to check the material out;
  • An electronic copy of the item, if possible. (If you are providing a document for us to scan, please indicate whether we should return the document to you or discard); and
  • As much identifying information as possible for items we need to track down.

Note: There is a 24-hour turnaround time for all course reserve requests. All materials on course reserve (traditional and electronic) for a semester will be removed from reserve at the end of that semester, unless prior arrangements are made with the Public Services Librarian.
