Course Reserves

Course Reserve for Faculty

Faculty members may place required reading materials on course reserve for students enrolled in their courses by completing this request form and sending it to the law library's Circulation Desk. We typically require at least three business days to process course reserve requests, and we prefer to have two weeks' prior notice whenever possible. Course reserve materials are located behind the Circulation Desk. Materials on course reserve can include past and current exams, books, audiovisual items, and personal copies of materials from faculty members. If you have a large number of photocopied articles for course reserve, please ask Faculty Services to place them in a three-ring binder before delivering them to the law library. Unfortunately, we are unable to place materials from other libraries on course reserve.

At the end of each semester, the law library removes course material from the course reserve area and deactivates course web pages. If you submit personal copies of material for course reserve, please pick up your material at the end of the semester.

Course Reserve for Students

At the request of law faculty, the law library will place certain materials on reserve for particular courses to help ensure students' access to these materials. To find out whether your professor has placed course materials on reserve at the law library, you can access the course reserve search function on our online catalog, Ignacio. Enter either "Instructor" or "Course Name" to access the course reserve page for your class.

If the material on reserve is in print format, you can ask for it at the law library's Circulation Desk. Please request all items by title. Typically, there is a two-hour loan period for course reserve materials. You must show a valid USF ID card in order to borrow course reserve material, and you must renew in person -- course reserve materials cannot be renewed online.
