General Information for Instructors

To provide instruction to students, the UCLA Library partners with faculty to offer course reserves. Please bear in mind that thousands of reserve items must be processed each term and that this significant workload cannot all be handled in the week before classes begin. Instructors are asked to supply reserve lists well in advance to allow time for books that need to be purchased for the collection or recalled from other users.

Whenever possible, articles, lecture notes, exams, problem sets, and other materials should be provided in electronic format. When requesting reserve service for journal articles, please provide the URL for the article; if that is unknown, please provide the article title, author, journal title, volume, and year, and staff will search for online access. It may also be possible to provide electronic access to lecture notes, exams, problem sets, and other materials; contact staff at the appropriate library for information.
