Course Reserves


Course Reserves are supplemental materials placed on hold by faculty and are located behind the Public Services desk. Upon request, a member of the library staff will retrieve the item for you.

For quick and easy help when requesting a reserve, please provide:

Have your Shepherd University ID (Rambler) card available for checkout.

Students are able to see if there are reserve materials for their course by clicking on the Course Reserve tab in the Max Online Catalog. Students can search by Instructor, Department, Course, or Section. Ask at the Public Services desk if the item is currently available.
