Course Reserves

Welcome to the new course reserves section of the Health Sciences Library website. Here you can find all the information from the old course reserves pages, including how to find course reserves for current classes and how to submit course reserves requests. Reserves are course-specific material set aside from the library's main collection with the purpose of making it easier for students to locate and view.

NOTE: A new, more convenient reserves system will go live on the afternoon of December 17.  You will be able to make requests online, without having to E-mail us a special form.  The new system will also allow you to add, remove, and edit your reserve materials directly.  All libraries with reserves will use the new system, and it will be used for both electronic and physical reserve materials.  A 1-minute guide to adding materials can be accessed here.

You also have the option of sending any requests you may have via E-mail to

Submit a reserves request

Spring 2016 Reserve Items were due November 1.  Items may be submitted throughout the semester, but please allow sufficient time to get your ready matericals.  NOTE: During the first month of Fall classes, you may expect up to a 2 week delay; however, once the initial rush passes the turnaround time drops to 3-5 business days.

The deadline for Summer 2016 is April 1.  Reserve Items turned in on or after 04/15/2016 are considered late and, as Reserve requests are processed in the order they're submitted, may potentially add to backlogs which will delay availability.
