Placing Items on Course Reserve

Are there limits to the number of items that can be placed on Course Reserve?
Due to space constraints and processing demands, a limit of 40 items per course is in place. Under exceptional circumstances, appeals to exceed this limit may be submitted to Glenn Lawson, Head, Access Services.
What if the Freel Library does not own the item I’d like to put on reserve?
It is possible to place a personal copy of any commercially produced item on course reserve. Bring any personal copies you wish to place on reserve to the Reserve Desk of the Freel Library.
The Freel Library will also attempt to order books needed for course reserve. Please contact Maureen Horak well in advance of when the item is needed for Course Reserve to inquire about ordering books for Course Reserve that the Library does not own.
All reserve requests must be submitted 48 hours in advance.
