What are Course Reserves?

Course reserves are library materials made available to students at the request of faculty, often in the context of required and recommended course readings.

Print materials are placed on hold at specific Harvard Library locations for short term loans to students enrolled in the course.

Materials available online are provided as links within your course website.



For Students

Details about reserves for your courses can be found via your course site.

Just look for the "Library Reserves" section. That's where you'll find links to online readings and information about how to access physical items placed on reserve.

Things to keep in mind 

  • Physical items placed on reserve are loaned out for three hours at a time.
  • You can check the availability of an item by clicking the links to HOLLIS in your course site.
