Faculty Reserves Services

Reserve materials are those which supplement course curriculum. The library will place course materials on reserve for an entire semester. If you have a lengthy list of required readings, please consider a course-pack-- consult your Library Liaison for assistance.

To request an item to be put on reserve, use the Course Reserve and Film Booking Request Form.

If we don't own the item you would like placed on reserve, please contact your Library Liaison.

Estimated 3 day turn around for materials to be available. Turn around time may be longer if materials are checked out or on order.

Information on Reserves

Reserve items are kept behind the main circulation desk. The items are checked out for a shortened loan period to accommodate class assignments. The most common loan period is a 2 hour loan for "in library use only". However, "Overnight" loans allow reserve materials to leave the library building ½ hour before closing and are due within the first hour the library reopens the next day. 3 hour, 4 hour, 24 hour, 3 day, and 7 day flexible loan periods are available upon faculty request. Instructors, contact reserves@dickinson.edu

For further information: reserves@dickinson.edu or (717) 245-1397 please ask for the on-duty supervisor.
