ASU Libraries offers Course Reserve services

November 29, 2012

As teaching faculty plan their next courses, ASU Libraries would like to highlight its helpful Course Reserve service, which provides shared access to required course reading for students enrolled in specific courses.

Teaching faculty may submit requests that include both books and journal articles from the libraries’ collection as well as personal copies of textbooks and other readings, if available.

To ensure that Course Reserve materials are available at the beginning of the semester, ASU Libraries encourages teaching faculty to submit requests as early as possible. Requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis, and some may take several days or longer to process if checked-out materials need to be recalled or new materials ordered.

Course Reserve staff at each library location will be able to provide more specific information on the copyright process.

For more information about the Course Reserve service and for contact information for your specific library location, consult the ASU Libraries website at
