Course Reserves is a service available to Newbury College faculty. Reserves are materials required for use in specific classes. The library houses the reserves for a part of a semester, the complete semester, or the whole year. Course Reserves provides a location for these materials assigned to students enrolled in classes.

Materials may be in print and media formats in compliance with the Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code). Course Reserves services are provided for students at the Circulation Desk in the Newbury College Library, on the ground floor of the Success Center.

  • Print Reserves -- Books and other print materials can be checked out to students. Faculty members select either a 2 hour, 24 hour, or 72 hour reserve period. Personal and library-owned materials may be placed on Print Reserves. Materials from non-circulating collections may not be placed on Print Reserves.
  • Media -- DVD's, videotapes, or other audio-visual formats can be placed on reserve. Personal and library-owned materials may be placed on Media Reserves. Some restrictions may apply in order to comply with the Copyright Law or due to budget and space restrictions.
