Access Course Reserves via SOUTHcat

Reserve materials (print, media and electronic formats) will be processed as they are received. Please allow five working days for the Reserves Coordinator to collect the materials. All articles will be placed on Electronic Reserve for remote access unless otherwise specified. Some publishers, such as Harvard Business School Press, will not allow their materials to be placed on electronic reserve. For more information, check MCOB Guidelines for Electronic Reserve.

If materials need to be pulled from one of the library's collections, just fill in the call number and we will retrieve the item for processing. If SOUTHcat, the library's online catalog, shows multiple copies of an item, make sure to indicate how many copies you want on Course Reserves.

Non-library owned materials such as personal copies of books, journal articles, chapters from books, tests, media, etc., must be delivered to the University Library Circulation Desk in person or emailed as attachments to (open email inbox) . Call numbers will then be assigned to each item.

You may complete the web form below or fill out a paper form available at When assigning titles to non-book items, please use the same title as you list on the course syllabi.

If all required fields [those marked with an asterisk (*)] are not completed, the form will not be processed.

Material in PDF or Microsoft Word format can be emailed as attachments to (open email inbox) . We will convert any Word documents to PDF format and put them on our server.


The library will only fulfill requests where the users have signified YES to the copyright restriction. The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or other reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright.

I agree to comply with these restrictions. Please read and check the box to agree with Copyright Restrictions.


Note: An inventory of your Course Reserve material is recommended each semester. Reserve materials are in closed stacks with limited charge-out periods; they are not readily available to all library users. Please help us make them available by canceling course reserve materials when they are no longer required for your class(es).

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
