Library Services for Faculty

The library offers services to faculty that support your students' success and learning outcomes

Library Reserves

Faculty can put items on reserve at either the Del Norte or the Eureka library

  • a wide variety of items can be held on reserve: textbooks, calculators, faculty-owned or library-owned
  • for students to use in the library for two hours
  • for term checkout if multiple copies are provided or purchased
  • some funds are available to purchase textbooks 

Because the reserve collection is a critical student resource, we ask faculty to please provide us with a copy of your course text.  Faculty unable to obtain an extra copy for reserves may request the library purchase a copy for reserves.  At the end of the semester, you can take the item off reserve or you can donate it to the permanent collection for future use. Copies purchased by the library remain as library property.

To check if your text is already in the reserve collection, visit the library catalog at and search by author or title. Use the advanced search to limit to reserves, location (Del Norte or Eureka) and/or other criteria.

The library can keep just about anything you like on reserve for student use. However,  all reserve materials must abide by copyright law and conform to applicable Board policies and administrative procedures (links below).
