Reserving Materials

This service increases student access to required course materials at no cost to them. Additionally, faculty may request the library purchase additional or supplemental materials that will support their course or program curriculum. 


  • All material requests will be handled on a first-come-first-served basis. 
  • Please submit request form ahead of time, this will allow time for processing, such as buying additional user copies, etc.
