About Reserves

Prior to the start of the new semester, we send faculty an email reminding them that it is time for them to begin planning for their reserves for the upcoming semester.

  • For best results, send in your requests as early as possible.
  • There will be delays in filling reserve requests for materials that are currently unavailable (checked out, we don’t own it, etc.).
  • Once the semester has started, we will fill new requests for reserves as soon as we can, in the order that we receive them.

Different Locations: Tisch Circulation, Music Library & SMFA Library
