The objective of the Library Reserve collection is to support the curriculum and contribute to student success by making course materials available (on a limited basis) to students.

The reserve collection of print materials is located at the Book Checkout Desk and that of non-print materials is located at the Print/Copy Desk.

General Guidelines

  • Instructors are encouraged to donate or loan course textbooks to augment the limited selection purchased through the Reserve Book Program. Please contact Library staff to see if a specific course textbook is included in the Program.

  • To place an item on reserve, instructors must complete a Course Reserve form and turn in at the Book Checkout or Print/Copy Desk. Forms must be filled out completely. A separate form is required for each title.

  • For those materials not owned by the Library, it is the instructor's responsibility to provide all material to be placed on reserve.

  • All reprinted articles and audiovisual materials must comply with current copyright laws and include a full bibliographic citation as to the source.

  • The Library reserves the right to limit the number of copies being placed on reserve for a given class.

  • If only one copy of an item is being submitted, only one loan period may be designated.

  • Materials borrowed from other libraries, including Mission College, may not be placed on reserve.

  • Materials for reserve will be processed in the order received. Please allow three days processing time before materials are available to students.

  • The Library is not responsible for replacement of damaged or lost personal copies.

  • The Library reserves the right to remove materials that have little or no activity.

  • All withdrawn instructor-owned materials must be picked up at the Book Checkout or Print/Copy Desk.
