Textbooks and Reserves

Course Reserves

To place an item on reserve in the Abington Library, please contact Catherine Rohland (caw25@psu.edu) at 215-881-7431. You may also submit the online Course Reserves Request. Reserve requests are available for "Use in the Library Only" for two hours.

Guidelines for placing books on reserve:

  • For faster processing, personal copies of textbooks may be brought to the Circulation Desk to be placed on reserve. If you do not have a personal copy available to be put on reserve, please contact Catherine Rohland (caw25@psu.edu) for alternate ways of requesting textbooks.
  • We can create durable links to full-text articles available through most, but not all, of the Libraries' licensed databases.  If an article is not available through the Penn State system,  please submit clean, scannable copies of articles to the Library.   E-reserves require 2-3 weeks for processing. 
  • ​For further information on Course Reserves, including copyright restrictions and linking reserves to Canvas, please refer to Course Reserves on the University Libraries homepage.
