Course Reserves Request Form

This form is for instructors to set up their course reserve lists.

  • For the safety of our students, faculty, and staff, Western Libraries is unable to provide physical course reserves during Fall Quarter 2020. Electronic reserves are still available.
  • With the goal of providing access to course materials, and in lieu of placing physical items on course reserve, we encourage faculty and staff to use digital materials to support their classes, such as digital access to articles, ebooks, streaming films, or open educational resources.
  • To request streaming media, please use the Streaming Digital Media Request Form or contact your Subject Librarian Team for assistance with resources for remote teaching and learning.
  • Please note: Requests for newly-scanned materials may take up to 7 days to complete due to current staffing and safety requirements.
  • Contact Course Reserves staff with any questions.
If items are from a previous list, please specify list in comments section below and leave item information blank.
You can upload a syllabus, citation list, or scanned material in Word or PDF format here.
Files must be less than 4 MB.
