How to place an item on Reserve

You can place physical items (books, articles, DVDs/CDs) on reserve at any Durham College Library for a 3-hour, 1-day or 3-day loan period. You may place existing library materials on reserve, as well as your own personal materials. Scanning individual chapters (subject to copyright guidelines) and posting them for online access is also possible. Please direct any questions to the contact information below.

Please fill in the reserve request form. Please allow one week for the processing of reserve requests.

If you would like to order an item for reserve which is not a personal copy or is not in the Library collection, please refer your requests to our Subject Librarians.

Only current Durham College students, faculty, and staff can access reserve material.


The Library’s Reserve system complies with copyright law. For more information regarding copyright issues, see the Copyright Guidelines on the Library’s website.
