Use the Course Reserves form for:

  • Books owned by the UCI Libraries
  • Books you would like the UCI Libraries to consider purchasing for reserves 
  • Personal copies or departmental copies of textbooks

Interdisciplinary courses and programs

  • If your course or program is cross-listed such that materials could be held at either Langson or Science Library, please submit in the comments field of the Reserves Request Form which location you would prefer your materials to be held. We suggest you select the library where your students will be doing the majority of their research.

Materials to be Purchased by the UCI Libraries for Reserves:

Please allow adequate time for ordering, receiving and processing material to be ordered by the UCI Libraries for Reserves.

Allow 4-6 weeks for recently published domestic material, and 6-8 weeks for recently published foreign material. Older and out-of-print material may require additional ordering time if not readily available from our major vendors.
