Faculty: learn how to place items on reserves for your courses.
Due to COVID-19 related health concerns and restrictions, the UNT Libraries Course Reserves Service is limited to electronic resources only. Instructors, please fill out the appropriate form to submit your course reserves request.

WHAT ARE RESERVES?

The UNT Libraries holds and distributes materials for instructors as required or recommended reading for their courses. These materials are placed at a service desk within the libraries or are made available online and can include books, articles, chapters of books, sample tests, videos, CDs, and DVDs.

To place items on reserves, please familiarize yourself with our reserves policies, and fill out one of these request forms or visit the appropriate Library Service Desk. In order to have material on Reserves in a timely manner, it is necessary for the Libraries to receive Reserves requests a minimum of two weeks prior to their initial use by students; otherwise, the Libraries cannot guarantee availability by the date needed. Additional time may be required for electronic reserves, media, and purchase requests.
