Circulation and Reserves
Searching for Course Reserves: From the library catalog, click on the Course Reserves button. Choose to search by either Course or Instructor name. Each reserved item has its own loan period, set by the requesting instructor. The reserved material may be a book, an article, a DVD, or a VHS tape. Circulation personnel will be glad to guide you through should you need assistance.
Placing materials on Course Reserve: Valparaiso University faculty are encouraged to use our online reserve form to place materials on reserve. At the time of the request, please also choose the loan period: 2-hour library use only, 2-hour overnight, 3 days, or 1 week. For more information, or if you are interested in eReserves, please contact Shannon Howe directly at (219) 464-5168 or via email.
