Q: Which libraries will put books on reserve for me?
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


Faculty members and teaching fellows can use Canvas to put books on reserve at: Bass Library, Divinity, Film Study Center, Haas Arts Library, the Marx Library, the Medical Library and the Music Library.

  • To put books on reserve at the Law Library, please use the Law Library’s Course Reserve form.
  • Some of the Special Collections within the libraries (the Haas Arts Library Special Collections, for example) will put their books on reserve in their own reading rooms instead of lending them out for use in the larger library areas.
  • Items in Yale's Special Collections can sometimes be scanned and placed on eReserves. Please contact your local reserves staff for more information.

For more general information about course reserves, please see the Library’s Reserve Policies page.
