All requests for book purchases must be submitted by the department chair. Please remember all purchases for materials will be deducted from your department's annual allotment.

Course Reserves

To add materials for Course Reserves, fill out this form

If the materials requested are in the library's collection and readily available, items will be added to your Course Reserves within 48 business hours.

We strongly encourage you to read through this tutorial BEFORE submitting your Course Reserves request. Due to vendor limitations, the form is not as user-friendly or intuitive as we would like.


For questions or more information on Course Reserves, please email us at and a staff member will be in touch with you.

Library Instruction

You may request library instruction for your students by filling out this form.

In order to ensure that instruction sessions are relevant to your class, we ask that you make requests at least two weeks in advance so that the librarian(s) have time to prepare and collaborate with you.

In order to better facilitate library instruction, we respectfully request that you, the faculty member, are present during our visit. You may wish to interject questions or observations pertinent to the course you are teaching, and you will want to know precisely what information your students learned from our librarians. This will ensure that your students are prepared for the demands of your subsequent assignments.

Room Reservations

Reserve a study, conference, or meeting room here

NOTE: Room reservations for the Tripp Room (212), Room 5, and Room 108 require approval by library staff. If the room is available, we will approve your reservation after the booking form has been submitted.

If you would like to reserve Einstein's Atrium for a special event, please email us at and a staff member will be in touch with you.
