Search for Items on Reserve by Course or Instructor

Faculty Reserve Request Form

Please use this form to request print, DVD, or other physical materials to be placed on library reserve.  Reserves are shelved behind the Circulation desk, and check out for 2 hours (textual) or 3 hours (media) to help ensure that all students enrolled in a course have fair access.  Materials that the library owns are available for overnight loan if checked out just before closing time.  If the materials belong to you, please bring them to the Circulation desk for processing.  If the materials are owned by the library, we are available to pull them for you. For more information, contact John Raymond, 518-783-2522 jraymond@siena.edu, or the Circulation department at 518-782-6717 circadm@siena.edu

Reserve Requests for Electronic Materials

Faculty typically take advantage of their learning management system (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.) to post electronic book chapters and articles.  If you'd like assistance in doing so, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 518-782-6000.  If you'd like to post a print copy of an article or chapter to library reserves, please use the form above.
