Course Reserves

Course reserves are materials chosen by faculty to support class instruction, such as 

  • books
  • pamphlets
  • periodicals
  • non-print items

Putting items on reserve insure students have access to required course materials. 

Reserve materials are available through the online catalog. Materials are reviewed, modified and approved by the instructor prior to the start of the academic year.

Reserve materials are usually part of the library collection but may also be part of a professor's personal library. Personal library materials may be on reserve for three semesters per the college copyright policy. The reserve loan period is determined by the professor. Space may limit the quantity of materials placed on reserve.

Course reserve materials must comply with U.S. copyright restrictions.

For more information or to reserve items for a course, contact Brandi Castillo at 815 802-8408 or
