Faculty Course Reserve Services

To submit a course reserve request log into Blackboard and select the class that requires course reserve material. If you don’t see your course contact the Instructional Support Center at 215-204-0789.

Once your course has been created you will need to activate Ares. We have prepared a video to demonstrate this process that can be found here: http://library.temple.edu/ares-tutorial

Reserve staff will process requests in the order received and will make every effort to ensure a two week or less turnaround.

Books not owned by Temple Libraries, or those unlocatable in the collection, can be rush ordered.

Owing to licensing restrictions that prohibit access by multiple users e-books are not a viable way to distribute learning content.

Instructors' personal copies of books may be placed on reserve. Temple Libraries cannot be responsible for the replacement or compensation of lost or damaged material.

Articles and book chapters from items not owned by the Temple Libraries will be requested through InterLibrary Loan or E-ZBorrow.

Books owned by Temple Libraries may need to be recalled from a patron.

All reserve materials are removed from reserve at the end of the semester unless reserve staff is otherwise notified. Instructors will be contacted in regards to personal copies.
