Reserve materials are those which supplement course curriculum. The library will place course materials on reserve for an entire semester. If you have a lengthy list of required readings, please consider a course-pack--consult the bookstore for assistance.

To request an item to be put on reserve, use the online Course Reserve and Film Booking Request Form.

To find films in our catalog, use the Film Search.

If we don't own the item you would like placed on reserve, contact your Library Liaison.

Estimated 3 day turn-around for materials to be available. Turn around time may be longer if materials are checked out or on order.

Information on Reserves

Reserve items are kept behind the main circulation desk. The items are checked out for a shortened loan period to accommodate class assignments. The most common loan period is a 2 hour loan for "in library use only". However, "Overnight" loans allow reserve materials to leave the library building ½ hour before closing and are due within the first hour the library reopens the next day. 3 hour, 4 hour, 24 hour, 3 day, and 7 day flexible loan periods are available upon faculty request. Instructors, contact reserves@dickinson.edu.

For further information, e-mail reserves@dickinson.edu or call (717) 245-1397 and ask for the on-duty supervisor.
