  • Course reserves

    Murphy Library Access Services maintains an active reserve collection of course materials such as circulating and personal copies of books and DVDs and limited numbers of textbook rental items. Please direct students to the Access Services circulation desk located on the main floor of the library to check out materials on reserve.

    Access Services staff will adjust the type, scope, and number of items made available with consideration of copyright law and fair use guidelines (see our Copyright Guide).

    Please allow one week for reserves processing and placement.

    Near the end of each semester, instructors will receive an e-mail requesting guidance on the continuation of the reserve item. Unless the faculty response to this e-mail indicates we should retain the reserve, all reserve materials will be removed and shelved or returned to the faculty member at the end of each semester.

    To request that items be placed on reserve, please fill out this form:

  • Walk-In Tours during opening week

    The library offers fast, no-registration tours for students, faculty, and staff during the first week of the semester. 

    Tours start in the library lobby at 12:00 noon every day of opening week, September 2, 3, 4, and 5. 

    The tours last about 20 minutes and cover the basic layout of the library, useful services, library collections, and tips to effectively use the library. Everyone is welcome to participate in these informal tours.
