Course Reserves is a collection of physical materials (books, DVDs, CDs, etc.) to be used for a specific course by students. Instructors may request materials from the library's general collection or lend their own personal copies of materials as described below.
The loan period for course reserve items is determined by the instructor and is one of the following options:
2 hours, 4 hours, 24 hours, 72 hours
*Disclaimer: Please note that VCU Libraries assumes no liability for damage to or loss of personal items placed on reserve.
VCU Libraries reserves the right to reject any material that it deems violates copyright law. Faculty members are responsible for acquiring permissions beyond those provided by the Copyright Act.
Collection Management will consider purchasing suggested materials that are not in the Libraries' collection.
Materials are processed in the order of receipt. A confirmation email will be sent to the instructor when processing is complete.
*Please be sure to read the prompts in the submission closely, as incomplete information can delay processing time.
