Murphy Library Access Services maintains an active reserve collection of course materials such as circulating and personal copies of books and DVDs and limited numbers of textbook rental items. Please direct students to the Access Services circulation desk located on the main floor of the library to check out materials on reserve.
Access Services staff will adjust the type, scope, and number of items made available with consideration of copyright law and fair use guidelines (see our Copyright Guide).
Please allow one week for reserves processing and placement.
Near the end of each semester, instructors will receive an e-mail requesting guidance on the continuation of the reserve item. Unless indicated otherwise, all reserve materials will be removed and shelved or returned to the faculty member at the end of each semester.
To request that items be placed on reserve, please fill out this form:

For more information on this space please see our blog. We look forward to learning how this room fulfills its intended
purpose. Please let us know how it is working for you. Send feedback on this space to
To provide more computers during the busy period at the end of the semester, the library is opening
an additional room with computers. Room 30, a computer classroom in the basement of the library,
will open during regular library hours starting December 1, 2013. Students will be able to use the desktop
computers in that room individually or in groups.
