Due to the number of submissions we receive at the beginning of each term, the process may take 3-4 weeks. At other times of the year, it may take 1-2 days. The inclusion of complete references will speed up the process. Processing time can also depend on the availability of material. Request early to avoid delays!


Print Reserve

Reserve requests are processed as soon as possible. At busy times of the year, processing can take additional time due to the volume of requests. Professor copies for reserve can be dropped off to staff at the Service Desk at Mills or Thode. Please ensure that other reserve requests are submitted well in advance. Since it takes several weeks to order and acquire new books, lists must be received well in advance of the start of a course. A partial list can be sent first and additions sent later. When photocopies are being requested, a copy of the course syllabus must be submitted along with the reserve lists. The inclusion of complete references will also speed up the processing of lists.
