Course Reserves

The Art Library can place texts on reserve for your classes. These items are in-library use only and may not be checked out. Journals, reference materials, or rare books will not be placed on reserve. 

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

To place a course reserves request: email with your course name and number and a list of the items you would like on reserve. Please specify the title, author, date, and other publication information. 

The turnaround time for course reserves is one week so please plan accordingly. Allow additional time for books that are currently checked out.
