For Faculty

Library Reserves

Reserves are readings and other materials that faculty members and instructors wish to make available to their students, either in hardcopy or electronically.

  • Required / suggested readings
  • Supplemental materials such as media, study guides, old exams, etc. 

How do I Submit a Request for Library Reserves?

Send us your syllabus or reading list with the following:

  • Your name
  • E-mail address
  • Course name and number
  • A bibliographic citation for each item
  • The dates or order of the reading assignments
  • URL's for online materials, if possible

We will scan for you. But if you choose to send scans or copies, please include:

  • Title page
  • The copyright statement, usually from:
    • Reverse of the title page in a book
    • First page of a journal article
    • etc.

Email your completed requests to:

  • Beren Campus: Elinor Grumet, Librarian,
  • Wilf Campus, Hebraica/Judaica courses: Moshe Schapiro, Librarian,,
  • Wilf Campus, excluding Hebraica/Judaica courses: John Moryl, Librarian,

We process requests on a first-come first-served basis.
"Crunch time” submissions, within two weeks of the beginning of the semester, will experience significantly longer processing times. Items not owned by the libraries will be ordered and processed, and may require additional lead time.

Faculty are notified of deadlines via email. If you are unsure of current deadlines, please email
