How Do I?


Find out what materials are currently on reserve. Search by course number (ex. HI 108), instructor's name, or title.


Course Reserves are located on the 2nd floor of the library. Instructors can place materials on reserve for cadet use. Materials can be owned by the library or by the instructor.


All library materials are marked with a use category:

  • “Reserve – Do not take” - Item must remain in Course Reserves for use by all patrons.
  • “Reserve – Overnight Loan” – Item may be checked out after 2100 and must be returned by 1000 the following day.
  • “Reserve – 7 day Loan” – Item may be checked out for one week

All instructor-owned material must remain in Course Reserves.

Cadets may use a photocopier near the Course Reserves to make copies of materials.


Use this form to request materials (books, DVDs, CDs, physical journals, instructional book equipment, and other items) for addition to Course Reserves. Please allow a few days for processing, especially at the beginning of the semester. Requests to add material can be made at any time throughout the year.
