Course Reserves

Our Course Reserves collection provides controlled access to items faculty have designated as required class reading, viewing, or listening.  Items are typically from the library's collection, but can also include personal copies.

Establishing a Course Reserve List

Faculty can submit course reserve requests and Kaltura (formerly Trinflix) video streaming requests by logging in to the Trinity “IS Request” ticketing system: Under “Request Type” select “Library,” then “Course Reserves.” 

Syllabi, email requests, or paper forms will no longer be accepted, except in extreme cases (and will delay processing). 

The library will purchase material for reserves at the request of faculty. Personal or departmental copies of textbooks may also be placed on reserve for student use. They can be brought to the circulation desk after the course reserve ticket has been submitted. Please bring your ticket number with you. 

Course Reserve requests are processed in the order in which they are received. The beginning of each term sees 100’s of requests, so the earlier you can get your request tickets in, the better. Please be aware that purchases and digitization of DVDs add to processing time. 

All items on Reserve will remain there for the semester and through exams, unless the instructor requests otherwise. 

Accessing Reserve Materials

All current reserve lists are in the library's catalog.
Reserve items are kept at the Information Services Desk on Level A.
Loan periods are typically 3 hours for books and media items unless the instructor requests otherwise. Materials not returned on time will generate a $5 per hour fine to a maxmum of $25.
Staff may limit the number of reserve items charged out concurrently during times when particular reserve items may be requested by multiple users.
