Place Materials on Reserve (Instructors)

This form is for MSU instructors to place items already in the catalog on reserve for your classes at the Libraries.

Important items to note:

  • Please do not recall checked out items yourself. Add them to the list, reserve staff will do the recall as part of processing.
  • You can renew a previously used list. See the Course Information section below.

Other Options

  • Request the purchase of an item for Reserve
  • To place instructor-owned materials or a coursepack on Reserve, print and fill out the Printable Reserve List Form from the Faculty Services page for the appropriate service desk. Include a list of the items (if you don't specify them on the form) and bring them to the appropriate service desk. You may also send them through campus mail.
