Course Reserves

The primary purpose of course reserves is to make limited supplies of course materials available to students in a timely and equitable manner. 

View current materials on reserve


  • Reserve materials circulate to Xavier University students (including concurrent), faculty, and staff only. 
  • To check out reserve materials, please have a photo ID, the course name and/or the course instructor’s name. 
  • Patrons can check out up to 2 reserve items at a time.

Loan Periods

There are 4 possible loan periods for reserve materials:

  • 2-hour
  • 24-hour
  • 3 day
  • 7 day

**Loan periods are determined by the instructor of the course.

Renewing Reserve Items

  • Reserve material must be renewed in person at the library where it was checked out. Reserves are not renewable online or by phone.
  • Reserve material may be renewed as long as the item is not booked for another patron at the time of renewal

**Reserve materials must be accompanied with a completed Reserve Form. All items will be removed from reserve at the end of the semester unless you notify us in advance. Once reserve expiration date has passed, reserve materials will be returned to the instructor’s respective department/office.
