Course Reserves

Reserves materials are books and media that faculty members and instructors set aside to assist students' with class work and papers. Physical reserves (books, DVDs, CDs) are kept behind the Information & Borrowing desk in the Goldfarb Library and have restricted borrowing rules. Electronic course materials (readings, ebooks, videos and other media) can be made available through LATTE.


Faculty members & instructors may put books and media on reserve by filling out the Course Reserves Request Form (more about materials that are accepted for reserve).
