If you do not have the PDF or the Library does not have the material electronically, you can request it via the document delivery service.

To add book to physical reserves in the Undergraduate Library:

Library books can be submitted to reserves directly from the catalog. (instructions)

Alternatively, you can simply send us your request via E-mail.  You may also prefer to use the old Book Request Form.

If you would like to put your personal copy of a particular book on reserve, please bring it to the circulation desk at the House Undergraduate Library and let us know the class for which you want to put it on reserve.

Books placed in the Main Print Reserves Collection are housed in the Reserve Reading Room in the Undergraduate Library and are available during library hours.

Other physical reserve collections are hosted Art Library, Health Science Library, Music Library, Media Resources Center, Park Library, and School of Information and Library Science Library.

Forms and materials can also be mailed to the Undergraduate Library at CB #3942. We will begin processing your list when we have received all materials.

Note: For copyright reasons, we cannot scan whole books for electronic reserves.  In addition, if you place a personal copy of the book on reserve, please be aware that it may be damaged or lost by patrons using the item.

Renewal or Changes:


Contact Reserves Staff ( if you have questions about request forms.  We are in the process of simplifying how we handle requests, so it is no longer essential to use the forms for everything (although it is more convenient for us).
