Course Reserves

Use this online form to request a course reserve.

Library or personal material can be placed on reserve at your discretion. Normally, reserve items can be used for up to two hours and only within the library. Faculty may specify other reserve conditions if necessary.

Library books and recordings can be placed on reserve by completing a Course Reserves Form, or by providing complete details to the library staff. Reservations for more than 10 items per class will be kept on the regular shelves and the library circulation system will be set not to allow borrowing of the specified items. Reservations for 10 or fewer items will be kept at the Circulation/Reserve desk, and handed to students on request.


  • Items which are the personal property of a faculty member can also be placed on reserve. The library will take all reasonable measures to safeguard personal reserve items.
  • Articles and personal property reserves will be returned to you at the end of each semester.
  • Items placed on reserve must abide by UAE and US copyright laws.
  • For additional information or questions on reserves, please email [email protected].
