Reserve Removal Policies
At the end of every semester all items will be removed and returned via campus mail. Instructors that request to pick up their items must do so BEFORE the end of the semester.
The library is not responsible for items not picked up, lost or damaged in the mail.
Instructors may renew Reserve courses for the following semester, but need to notify reserve staff prior to the end of that semester. Reserve items can only be renewed for Fall to Spring semester.
If the library does not own a book or item you need for reserve, please submit an Online Book Request Form. It may be possible for the library to purchase the material in time for your course reserves, provided your request is received before the semester begins. The library does not generally purchase textbooks for Reserves or the collection. Instructors will be notified when items purchased for Reserve arrive.
Instructors are encouraged to recycle textbooks by donating them to the Textbook Collection. The library will accept texts currently being used in the classroom.
Please bring donations to the Checkout Desk during library hours and complete a short form. We require information about the item such as course number and title to allow library staff to make the texts available quickly. Any material donated to this program will become the property of the library.
