Course Reserves

Choose a form below and enter the necessary information. Items belonging to the professor should be delivered to the Circulation Desk at Hunter Library; library materials to be placed on reserve can also be dropped off when a request is made to facilitate processing.

 All reserves that need to be available the first week of the semester must be submitted and available to process 2 weeks prior to the first day of classes.  After the first week of classes, we can usually process material within a week. At the end of each semester, all materials will be removed from reserve unless you notify us that you will be teaching the same class the next semester. You will need to update the appropriate form for any material you plan to keep on reserve.


Complete a Book Reserve Request Form for each class.

  1. A barcode will be permanently affixed to the back, inside cover of personal books.
  2. Books belonging to ASU or UNCA may be put on reserve at WCU but only for the time they are checked out to the faculty member. These books will be returned on their due date.
