    • Download the form here and send your completed form and item(s) to the Library using campus mail.
    • Or bring in your materials to the Circulation Desk in the Library with the completed form. Forms are also available at the Circulation Desk and can be completed upon submission of materials. 
    • The Library has some assigned textbooks and DVDs in its permanent collection which can be reassigned to Course Reserve.
