Put a Textbook on Reserve: Home


If you have questions about this process, please email Mike Leamy.

Course Reserves

Make Materials Available to Your Students!

Physical Reserves 

Do you have a copy of your textbook that you can spare?  Put it on reserve!  

We offer 2 hour, 1 day, and 7 day loan periods.  This allows student to keep up with the course while they wait for their textbook to come in.  If you have books that can be used in this way, please fill out the form attached the bottom of this page, and bring it with your book to the appropriate library.

Digital Reserves 

We are piloting digital reserves this semester using a concept known as controlled digital lending. Like all new technologies, there have been more than a few hiccups along the way!  

If you're teaching a class where you know that more than 4 sections of that class are using the same physical textbook, and you're interested in working with us to provide digital copies of a portion of the textbook, please contact Michael Leamy at

We are no longer scanning portions of books to be shared via Canvas.
