Reserves icon Materials for Your Courses

The library purchases physical and digital books, films and media to support your courses. The subject librarian works closely with your department for the purchases. The Library Information Desk provides physical course reserves for courses. Instructors may request library-owned books and DVDs, and faculty personal copies of books and DVDs be put on reserve.

Open education resources (OER) helps to make education affordable and accessible by providing free access to materials. We encourage faculty to contact Laurie Preston (, the Head of Reference, for locating and evaluating OER textbooks or materials for your courses. Funding opportunities are available through VIVA (a statewide academic consortium) for faculty interested in creating OER resources. Contact Laurie Preston ( for information.
