Books and Movies

  • To request materials be placed on reserve, please submit our Course Reserve Request Form
  • You may place books and movies (d’Alzon Library copies or personal copies) on reserve for your students to use in the Library.
  • Please allow staff one week to process your reserve requests, before instructing students to use them. If a requested item is not in our collection, please allow us 4-6 weeks to order the item and prepare it for circulation.
  • All items will be removed from reserve at the end of the semester. Personal copies will be returned to faculty.

Documents that you provide in print or electronic format, as well as electronic materials owned by the Library, can be placed on electronic reserve and made available to your students in your Brightspace site. Examples of items that can be placed on eReserve include: syllabi, exams, lecture notes, journal articles, book chapters, study materials, and material from websites. 

How do I send materials to the Library so that they will be posted as eReserves, and how long will it take?

  • To request materials be placed on eReserve, please submit our eReserve Request Form.
  • If you already have a PDF copy of the material, please send it as an email attachment to Mary Rigali at
  • Individual readings over 50 pages will be placed on reserve in print and made available for check-out at the Front Desk of the Library.
  • To ensure that materials will be available when your students need them, please submit your materials well before the start of the semester (at least two weeks) and at least one week in advance of an assignment during the semester. 
  • If you have any questions, please contact Mary Rigali at or 508.767.7136.
