Physical Reserves

Who can put items on reserve?

Instructors and GSIs may submit reserves requests.

How do I put items on reserve?

Option 1: Bring books, scores, CDs, or personal copies to the Music Library circulation desk.
  • Music Course Reserves Forms are available to fill out at the circulation desk. Please note that personal copies will be available to patrons for library use only (no overnight circulation) unless otherwise specified.
  • Please drop off reserves to a supervisor, if possible.

Option 2: Submit reserves through the online Course Reserve Request Form.

  • Your list should include author, title, and call number information for each item.
  • Complete and accurate information will result in quicker processing.

When should I submit reserves requests?

Reserves requests can be submitted throughout the term. During peak periods (mid-August through early October and mid-December through early February) our goal is to process reserve materials in 2 to 5 days. Under certain circumstances, however, it can take 3 to 5 weeks to fully process an item. It is strongly recommended that reserves requests be received at least 3 weeks prior to the beginning of the term. At non-peak times, requests may be processed in 1-2 days.

What items can I put on reserve?

  • Regularly circulating items: 1 item of the same call number
  • Research copies: 1 item of the same call number
  • Reference books: 1 item of the same call number
  • Bound journals - 1 item of the same call number
  • Personal copies
NOTE: Current journals are not placed on reserve as they do not circulate. Individual journal articles should be made available through electronic reserves.
