Course Reserves in the Library

Instructors may put textbooks, articles, chapters, videos, class notes, study guides, and other course materials on reserve at the library so that they are available for students. Both library-owned and instructor-owned material are put on reserve for FLC classes.

To Place an Item on Reserve

  1. Read the guidelines (below).
  2. Fill out the reserve request form (below).
  3. If you are placing a personal item on reserve, bring it to the library or send it via campus mail.

Please allow three business days for the processing to be completed when adding or removing reserve items.

Guidelines for Placing Materials on Library Reserve

Instructors may request to have materials owned by the library placed on reserve. Instructors may also place legally-obtained personal copies of books, videos, and other materials on reserve. Note that the library is not responsible for any lost or damaged personal materials.

Course materials that can be accessed via Canvas (such as handouts, scanned documents, lab manuals, tests, electronic links to journal articles, and course readers) are not accepted for library reserves. Instructors must comply with copyright law when uploading course materials to Canvas. Check out the University of California's guide to copyright and course materials for more information.
