How do I place materials on reserve?

Use the  Reserve Request 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.

Electronic Reserves

Faculty can take advantage of Canvas to post electronic articles or book chapters. Please provide your students with the permalink to library resources instead of uploading a document (PDF, scan, etc.) directly to Canvas. Permalinks are stable links that connect your students to a resource; Here is an example of a permalink to an eBook. When off campus, Siena users will be prompted to log in with their network credentials. For instructions on how to create permalinks please see the guide to persistent linking.
