Course reserves are materials faculty have requested be made available to students for reading assignments. Items that may be placed on course reserve include the following:
- All library materials, including books, periodicals, and videos. If the library does not own an item and it is a necessary part of ADU coursework, collection development will consider purchasing the item.
- Personal copies of journals, books, videos, or other media. The library cannot guarantee the safety of these items from damage or loss.
- Readings, lecture notes, course syllabi, and exams. Faculty are encouraged to provide a copy of the course syllabus when making course reserve requests.
- Audio or video recordings of lectures.
Textbooks are not placed on course reserves except at the request of a professor. The library only purchases one copy of a textbook. If textbooks are donated, the library will only keep two copies of each title.
