Request Your Spring 2023 Course Reserves Now

A library bookshelf full of books.

Georgetown’s spring semester is underway, but there's still time to take advantage of the Library’s course reserves service. We can help faculty and instructors prepare course readings and assignments, by:

  • Placing 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.
  • Scanning selected book chapters and journal articles as PDFs. 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.
  • Providing permalinks to ebooks in the Library catalog that faculty can add in Canvas.
  • Providing streaming media via licensed services directly to a course’s Canvas page.

While you can make requests for reserves throughout the semester, we encourage you to submit your requests as soon as you can. For more information and to place requests, please visit our Reserves page. You can also email for information or assistance.
