Course Reserve

Course reserves (print and electronic) are materials (including books, disks, A/V materials, journal articles and/or photocopies, electronic resources, instructional equipment and non-book items) chosen by the faculty to support class instruction. The materials are maintained in a separate location within the library or online from the library website, and access to the material is more restricted than is the access to items in general circulation.

To access the current course reserve materials please click here.

For Students:
Course Reserve materials are located on the ground floor of Issam Fares Library Learning Center, at the Circulation Desk in Abi Chahla Medical Library, the Saint John of Damascus Institute of Theology Library and ALBA Library (Sin-El-Fil). Electronic materials can be accessed through the integrated library system. In general, materials on reserve are not to be checked out. If instructed by the professor, materials on reserve can be borrowed for two hours only during the day or overnight.

Note: Course Reserve materials must be returned to the same service desk from which they were borrowed.

Overdue Fees: Fees for overdue Course Reserve materials are assessed at the rate of 1,000 L.L for each overdue hour, including overnight, to a possible maximum of $100. For unreturned material, additional replacement and processing fees may also be assessed.

For Professors:
Item Limits:
The limit on items (physical and electronic reserves) that may be placed on reserve for a given course and instructor per semester is 30.

To place items on reserve you can:
  • Fill this Form for books available in the library,
  • Email softcopies to the concerned library employee (contact details are provided below),
  • or/and send hardcopies of materials to the appropriate library’s circulation desk.

Processing requires 3-4 days on average once the request and photocopies are submitted.

"Permanent" Reserve:
Only non-copyrighted materials such as exams or syllabi may be allowed to remain on electronic reserve indefinitely. All other physical and electronic materials, including materials owned by the University Libraries, will remain on reserve only during semesters when the course for which those materials were requested is in session.
