Many faculty members choose to place material on reserve in order to ensure that all students in the class have access to it. This page will help to guide you to the information you need to use this service as a student or faculty member.
The libraries have a selection of resources (including a limited number of textbooks) on reserve for in-library use only. Each faculty member is responsible for placing materials on reserve for a course. Please check with the library staff at your campus for available resources.
Library Course Reserves provides access to course-related readings and other materials selected and put on reserve by a faculty member for students to access. In addition to the Course Reserves housed physically in the Attleboro, Fall River, and New Bedford Libraries, we have an online option for certain materials. Online Course Reserves allow students access 24/7 as long as they have a computer with an internet connection.
