COVID-19 Update: Please Read

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Library Course Reserves will be taking additional precautions in the Fall 2020 semester to help ensure the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff. Reserved items will be placed in a one-week quarantine when returned to the Library after being used by each student. This policy will create an increased delay between check-out periods.

For Faculty

NB: All items and request forms must be received in the Library a minimum of two weeks prior to the date that items are needed by students.

Instructions for submitting Course Reserves

  • Complete the electronic Course Reserves Request Form for each item to be placed on Reserve.
  • Bring personally owned items to the Library Circulation Desk (LB-200).

Course Reserves Policies

  • Reserves are a means for instructors to make physical media available to students for short-term checkout periods: 2 hours, 24 hours, 4 days, or 7 days.
  • Only items owned by the IU Southeast Library or supplied by instructors may be placed on Reserve. Items owned by other libraries, including other Indiana University libraries cannot be placed on reserve. If the Library does not own needed items, instructors may complete a Purchase Request Form for review.
  • • All personal items placed on Reserve are done so at the instructor's risk: the IU Southeast Library is not responsible for replacing or compensating for lost or damaged items.
  • If submitting student papers, please review the Policy on Accepting Student Papers for Reserve.
  • Only original media materials or licensed copies with proof of permission will be accepted.

For Students

Print Course Reserve Materials may be checked out at the Circulation Desk. You need to know your instructor's name and the course number. Depending upon the type of reserve your instructor set up you may check out materials for 2 hours, overnight, 4-days or 7-days using your CrimsonCard.

There are fines if materials are returned late:

  • 2 Hour Reserve — $ 1.00 per hour until item is returned.
  • Overnight, 4-Day, 7-Day Reserves — $1 per day until item is returned.
