Course Reserve Materials

Faculty may place books or media (DVDs/VHS) on reserve in the library for student access.  Items are generally checked out for 3 hours, but the established checkout period is at the faculty member's discretion.  Reserve materials are scheduled to be removed at the end of the semester, but may be extended at the faculty member's request.

The University of North Texas at Dallas Library adheres to all applicable Copyright Laws outlined in Title 17 of the United States Code.

Use the Course Reserves Submission Form to print and accompany any course materials submitted to the library to be placed on course reserve.
