Library Services for Faculty

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

Library Reserves

We encourage faculty to put items on reserve in the Library!

  • a wide variety of items can be held on reserve: textbooks, calculators, faculty-owned or library-owned
  • students can check items out for use in the library for two hours
  • term checkout for students is available if multiple copies are provided or purchased
  • the library has minimal funds 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, you can search in OneSearch for the title. Be sure you are searching only materials in the CR Books and Videos, and not Everything; and you can limit your search to books held at a specific location (Eureka or Del Norte).

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).
