Request reserves

Put books, film, music on reserve

Note about reserves at the SMFA
  • SMFA Reserves are organized into open & closed reserves depending on the length of time you want the item to be checked out for (see below).
  • If you choose 4 hours, the reserve item will be "closed" and shelved behind the SMFA circulation desk.
  • If you choose 8 hour/overnight, 3 day, or 7 day, the reserve item will be "open" and shelved in the SMFA stacks.
We strongly encourage you to supply a call number - we'll be able to make the item available to students sooner.
For a music item, please let us know the following things in the comments section below, if applicable:
  • Call number of score
  • Preferred performer
  • If the library should order the recording

Are you tired of copying and pasting into this form?  Try the Reading List Tool, where you can search the library catalog without leaving your Canvas course site, select the items you’d like on reserve, and submit.  Click here for detailed instructions

If you have any questions about course reserves, please contact Allison Faeth.
