General guidelines for submitting a Course Reserves list
- Reserves materials for all Barnard courses are processed at the Barnard Library.
- Course Reserves lists may not be duplicated at multiple libraries.
- Only one copy of a literary work (a novel, short story collection, play, or poetry) is placed on reserve; second or multiple copies remain in the stacks and circulate for the semester.
When to submit a Reserves list
- Submitting a Reserves list for an upcoming semester before the end of the current semester is recommended.
- Reserves lists are processed in the order that they are received.

- Our rule of thumb for books is one copy for every 35 students in a class.
- Only copies of required readings are put on reserve. Supplementary readings are not placed on reserve.
- Information on requesting streaming media for Course Reserves can be found through this link.
