Q: Who can check out course reserve materials?
Answered by: Brad Gable


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


Although some course reserve materials are shelved in the open stacks, these items are only available to be checked out by current students while they remain on reserve. Course reserve materials are generally placed on reserve until the end of the current semester.

Course reserve materials can be identified in two ways. There will be a band around the front cover of the item indicating it is a "Yale University Library Course Reserve." There also will be a note in the Orbis or Quicksearch record indicating location, type of reserve, and duration (Example: “Bass Library, Stacks, 24-Hour Reserve”). 




Please visit the Course Reserves guide for more information.
