Q: What can I do to get my course reserve requests processed quickly?
Answered by: Jessica Bower


Fall 2020

The library is currently processing only electronic reserves. Current students should look for e-reserve material in Canvas. Faculty can request material to be put on e-Reserve via Canvas. Find more information about current reserve policies at


  1. Requests are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. To ensure that all of your requests will be up by the new semester, please submit them two months in advance.
  2. Please provide as much information as possible on Canvas as this will help staff process your requests as quickly as possible.   
  3. If you are submitting a request for print materials, in addition to title and author, please provide call #’s and location.
  4. If you are submitting a request for e-reserves, staff will activate any uploaded PDF’s or URL’s within 24-36 hours.
