Course Reserves


The library provides reserve materials in both electronic and physical formats.

All e-reserves are listed in Cook Library's Docutek service.

  • Electronic reserves listed in Docutek will have links to these online resources for your course.
  • Physical reserves are listed on Course Reserve pages, in alphabetical order by faculty last name, which are accessible via the binders at the Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor of Cook Library.

More about electronic reserves / e-reserves

E-reserves provide you with 24/7 online access. When available for your course, your instructor will give you information about how to access these resources.

Options include:

  • Via Docutek - you can use the Docutek navigation options to find your course. You will need a password from your instructor to view the resources there.
  • Via Blackboard/LearnOnline - if your course uses Blackboard, your instructor may have put links to the course reserves in Blackboard. By signing into the Blackboard course, you will have access to the reserve items without needing an additional password.

More about physical reserves

Location: Circulation Desk (Floor 3)

You will be expected to present your TU OneCard at the desk in order to borrow reserves materials.

Generally, physical reserve materials are for library use only. However, instructors occasionally allow personal copies to circulate for one to three days. In these instances, the desk attendant will inform you of the item's loan period.
