Place Course Readings on Library Reserve

The purpose of library course reserves is to make required class readings available to students.

UHCL Faculty may place both print and electronic materials on reserve for student use at:

  • Neumann Library
  • UHCL Library at Pearland
Print Reserves

Faculty may:

  • Provide personal copies of class readings (books & articles) for inclusion in the course reserve collection.
  • Request that UHCL library-owned materials be placed on reserve.

If the library does not carry something that you need, you can recommend purchases for your field by completing the Suggest a Book form. Please allow three weeks for us to order and process requested materials. You will be notified if the book is out of print or otherwise unobtainable.

Electronic Reserves

Neumann Library can make your course reserves (journal articles, single book chapters, or class notes) available online for your students through our e-reserves system.

If the material is available through the library databases, we will create a persistent link to the article.  If it is not, we can also take your digital material or scan your print material. These passworded documents will be available to your students anywhere they have access to the Internet.

To maintain compliance with U.S. copyright law, UHCL sets limits on the number and duration of materials that can be placed on reserve without written copyright permission.  Please view the U.S. Copyright Compliance box for a full explanation of the library’s policies.
