Physical course reserves will not be available for the Fall 2020 semester. We are accepting requests for electronic course reserves, which are uploaded directly into Canvas. Please read our "Personal Copy for Scanning" section below to learn more about how we can create digital scans from instructors' personal copy of textbooks.
Course Reserves are course-related materials made available, either electronically or physically, through the FSU Libraries. Course materials may be put on reserve at one of the libraries or made available on Canvas at the instructor’s request. Reserve items may be checked out at a library service desk for short-term use in the library.
Location of Reserve Items
All physical reserves, such as textbooks, DVDs, microfilm, and more are located behind the circulation desk at their respective libraries.
Electronic Reserves or "e-reserves", such as digital copies of journal articles, scanned portions of monographs, and films for streaming are uploaded to the course's Canvas page in a folder tiled "e-reserves."
Loan Periods and Late Fees
Any physical item on Reserve at the library must be used in the library.
The Loan Periods and fines are represented in the table below.
|2 Hours||$3.00 per hour (Max fine of $30.00)|
|4 Hours||$3.00 per hour (Max fine of $30.00)|
* Any Course Reserve/Textbook that is late by 24 hours or more will be charged in full to the person who checked it out. The replacement fine is non-refundable, and the library will automatically order another copy for Course Reserves.
For questions concerning fines please contact Fines Management.
