Placing Items on Reserve

Due to quarantine times required to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 from contamination of library materials, Oesterle Library will not be able to place physical materials on Course Reserve during the Fall 2020 semester. However, there are other ways materials might be made available to students, and library staff remain committed to helping faculty facilitate this process. Faculty who would like to make library (or other) resources available to their students in a safe manner, please contact Belinda Cheek at Please provide full citation information for all resources so that we can identify options for you and your students.
