A guide to the Bishop Library resources and services that are available to faculty.

Reserves at the Library

Library items or personal items owned by faculty can be put on reserve for a class.  A temporary record will be created in the library catalog for any items that the library does not own.  To place a item on reserve, you can call/stop by the library or email

Along with the title of the item, make sure include the instructor's name, course id, and checkout period on your request.  Personal items can be dropped off at the circulation desk to be put on reserve.

Checkout periods for reserves include:

  • 3 hours
  • 1 day
  • 1 week


Course Reserves

Search for Course Reserves in Primo, the Library's Catalog.  You'll need to click on the magnifying glass to the right of the search box and select the Course Reserves Scope to focus on reserves.
