Course Reserves


Print Reserves

To find complete course reserve listings and item information search by instructor, department, or course under NUsearch's Course Reserve tab. Please bring the call number to the library circulation/reserves desk. Reserve materials may be charged out for four hour intervals and may be taken out of the library facility.

Electronic Course Materials

Electronic reserves and course materials are accessible through the course's Canvas site.


In general the library does not put a current course's textbooks on reserve. All print items on reserve are listed in NUsearch under the Course Reserve tab. Inquiries about specific items should be directed to the course's instructor.


Course Reserves

The library offers a comprehensive reserve service to support your instruction. Library materials, instructors' personal copies of books, print copies of articles, and videos may be placed on reserve behind the library circulation desk for students.


Requests for materials to be placed on course reserve should be sent to Jennifer Lubejko, Access Services Librarian (e-mail | 312-503-3274) . Please include your name, complete course name, and complete citations.

If the library owns the item we put it on reserve until the end of the semester. If the library does not, own the item, and you do not have a personal copy for reserve, please so indicate and we will determine the best way to proceed. Please specify if you would like specific chapters digitized.

You may drop off items to be digitized at the circulation desk. Please include course name, instructor, and accurate citation information.

Please be aware that copyright guidelines and fair use policies restrict some materials from being placed on reserve.

In order to accommodate all reserve requests we limit the number of items to be scanned to 50 per course. Most reserve materials may be processed in five business days, but for lists larger than 15 items please allow longer processing time. If you have a large reserve job, we ask that you finalize and submit your list as early as possible, because the days prior to the start of a semester are especially hectic in the library.
