Using Course Reserves

HSLS offers both electronic course reserves (e-course reserves) and print course reserves, providing opportunities for instructors to assign a variety of reading materials for students. All current semester course reserves can be browsed from the current course reserves list.

Items on e-course reserve are available online and may require additional authentication using a valid University of Pittsburgh computing account.

Items on print course reserve are available at the Falk Library Main Desk and must be checked out using a valid University of Pittsburgh ID. Print course reserve items may be checked out for two hours or overnight, depending on the specifications of the instructor. Some two-hour reserves can only be used in the library.

Instructors looking to add course reserves should review the HSLS Course Reserve Guidelines and Best Practices. Use the online form to request a course reserve item, allowing three weeks in advance of when the material is needed for your course.
