ASU Libraries highlight Course Reserve

December 09, 2009

As teaching faculty plan their fall courses, ASU Libraries would like to highlight helpful Course Reserve service. 

Course Reserves is a service that provides shared access to required course reading for students enrolled in specific courses. Teaching faculty may submit requests that include 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, teaching faculty are encouraged 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 please consult the ASU Libraries Web site at
