The library offers reserve services to faculty to make supplemental course materials available to students in either physical or electronic format. See what physical reserves are available for your class in the library catalog. See the sections below for a complete description of our reserve services.

Overview for Faculty

Electronic reserves (articles, book chapters, websites, etc.) are now integrated into Blackboard. Professors may drop off materials, with the appropriate form, to be scanned and posted in their Blackboard courses, or may ask for online materials to be linked from their Blackboard courses. For more information about placing items on electronic reserve, please contact Laurie Phillips, Associate Dean for Technical Services, at 864-7833 or phillips@loyno.edu.

Professors who would like to place materials on electronic reserve in Blackboard can visit our forms page, or may select the appropriate form here:

 

Physical reserves (books, music scores, compact discs, DVDs and videos) are available at the Learning Commons desk in the library. Instructors should fill out the appropriate form and bring it with the materials to be placed on reserve. For more information about placing items on physical reserve, please contact Evonne Lawrence, Circulation Manager, at 864-7165 or ekelly@loyno.edu or Rosario Barrios, Music Manager, at 864-7258 or barrios@loyno.edu.

Overview for Students

Electronic reserves (articles, book chapters, websites, etc.) are now integrated into Blackboard. Access electronic reserve materials by logging into Blackboard; in your Blackboard course, click on the Library Reserves button in the menu on the left. Music students can access streaming audio within Blackboard as well.

Physical reserves (books, music scores, compact discs, DVDs and videos) are available at the Learning Commons desk in the library. Ask for materials by the professor's name, check the binder at the Learning Commons desk to see what your professor has on reserve, or search for reserves by instructor in the library catalog. Reserves generally have a much shorter loan period (2 hour, 4 hour, or 1 day) so that the materials are available to all students in the class.
