Request Your Fall 2022 Course Reserves Now

A library bookshelf full of books.

We may be in the middle of a hot D.C. summer, but Georgetown’s fall semester is coming up quickly. The Library can help faculty and instructors prepare course readings and assignments. We can:

  • Place books, CDs, and DVDs on reserve for short-term loans for student use. You may select short-term loan periods (2 hours, 4 hours, 24 hours, or 72 hours) to ensure your students have enough time to use the materials. Reserves for physical items will resume for the fall semester, but may be requested now.
  • Scan selected book chapters and journal articles as PDFs using optical character recognition. These PDFs can be delivered to instructors in Box, and instructors can add them to Canvas or distribute them in other ways. Once delivered, these PDFs can be used in future semesters.
  • Provide permalinks to ebooks in the Library catalog that faculty can add in Canvas.
  • Provide streaming media via licensed services directly to a course’s Canvas page.

We encourage you to submit your requests as soon as you can, and remind you that additional reserves can be added throughout the semester. For more information about reserves and to place requests, please visit our Reserves page. You can also email for information or assistance.
