About Course Reserves

Carrier and Rose Libraries
Course reserves is a service that allows high use materials to be held at the circulation desks so that students can check them out with abbreviated loan periods. Library books, e-books, compliant personal copies, and videos may be put on reserve at Carrier and Rose Libraries. In collaboration with liaison librarians, we're also able to order materials for the collection that can be put on reserve at any JMU library location. For information or questions about course reserves at Carrier and Rose Libraries, please contact us via email at reserves@jmu.edu.

Media Reserves
Video or nonprint media can be made available at Carrier and Rose Libraries for use outside of class time. Library media and compliant personal copies may be put on reserve. In collaboration with liaison librarians, we're also able to order new items for the collection that can be put on reserve at any JMU library location. For information or questions about media reserves, please contact us via email at mediaresv@jmu.edu

Music Library
All Faculty may place personal material and material FROM ANY JMU LIBRARY on reserve in the Music Library. We encourage and support placing digital items directly into your Canvas course.
