Course Reserves

Course Reserves

Each semester, Milne Library staff examine the list of faculty textbook requests. We move any library-owned title to 4-hour reserve in order to benefit a higher number of students. 

Faculty are strongly encouraged to donate copies of textbooks for this highly circulating collection.

Students can ask for these textbooks by title at the Service Desk. Including the call number in your syllabus can be helpful.

Additional materials such as course readings, DVDs, and CDs can also be placed on reserve.

For items already owned by Milne Library, we can move them from the stacks to Reserves.

For questions about course reserves, please contact Tim Finnigan (585) 245-5192
