Course Reserve Information for Students

Reserve Readings

Search the library catalog, Franklin, by selecting the Course Reserve tab.
You can search by any of the following:
  • your instructor's name from the instructor drop-down list or
  • your course number from the course list or
  • combine the instructor and course search.
All materials currently on reserve for the instructor or course will be listed in alphabetical order by title.
Course reserve materials may include books, videos, and/or electronic materials.
Note: Some or all of your course material may be available on Canvas or other courseware, or from a web page set up by your instructor. Check with your instructor if you have questions.

Print Reserve Locations

The largest reserve collection, Rosengarten Reserve, is located in the Goldstein Undergraduate Study Center, on the ground floor of Van Pelt-Dietrich Library. Each Penn Library also has its own reserve collection.

Adding Course Reserve Materials

Ask your instructor to contact the appropriate library reserve department to place materials on reserve, whether physical or electronic. Please note that instructors should allow a week for new requests to be processed, and that only requests submitted by the deadline are guaranteed to be available by the first week of classes.
