Art Library Course Reserves: Home

Information for faculty and instructors on how to place course reserves in the UofL Art Library.

Course Reserves

The Art Library can place physical items on reserve for your classes. These items are in-library use only and may not be checked out. There is a limit of 20 items per class. Journals, reference materials, or rare books will not be placed on reserve. 

For faculty teaching online or hybrid classes, the Art Library will scan articles, book chapters, etc. (no more than 10% of the total work due to copyright restrictions) for faculty to make available electronically to students through Blackboard. For assistance with Blackboard, visit the Delphi Center

The turnaround time for course reserves is one week so please plan accordingly. Allow additional time for books not currently in place at the library.
