Libraries accepting fall course reserves lists

The UNL libraries offers faculty and graduate students the opportunity to put library books, journal articles, personal copies of books and other items on reserve for student use.

Reserve lists are processed in the order received and take one to four business days to be completed. Requests submitted on the first day of class and during the first three weeks of the fall and spring semesters may experience some delay in processing.

Requests may also be delayed if materials requested are unavailable.

Books can be put on reserve and made available in all City and East campus libraries. Reserve requests for UNL libraries books can be made online at

Materials can be made available via electronic reserve at Materials that can be made available electronically include exams, lecture notes, student papers (which must be approved by the student), government publications, one article from a journal issue, and one chapter from a book.

To ensure requests are processed in a timely manner: supply complete citations of materials; and, when requesting a personal copy of a book or other personal material, remember to include it with the request.
