Place Course Materials on Reserve for Student Access

Faculty may submit course materials to go on reserve at the library for students to use throughout the semester.

Place personally-owned or college-owned books, videos, articles, and other materials on reserve for your students at any LSC library.

Note: the library does not purchase copies of textbooks for the reserve collection. If you don't have a spare copy, please talk to your department chair about purchasing copies for the reserve collection.

Textbooks cannot be labeled "for instructor use only" or similar.
