STU Course Reserves

Materials for Reserve

Instructors can place up to 20 items on Reserve for each course by submitting a request to

Items that may be included in a Course Reserve are:

  • Physical items from UNB Libraries's collection
  • Approved items provided by the instructor* (i.e. monographs, DVD’s, journals, etc.)

*UNB Libraries are not responsible for damaged or lost items. 

UNB is not able to place any photocopied or scanned material on Reserve for STU courses. Any duplication of published materials to be distributed to students should be coordinated with STU’s administration and Access Copyright agreement.

Generally, materials that have been originally published for a specific user (such as workbooks or assignment booklets) are considered "consumables" and are not intended for multiple copying and distribution. The following is a list of common materials that should not be placed on Reserve for classroom use:

  • Complementary or Review textbooks provided by publishers
  • Business School case studies
  • Study guides
  • Workbooks
  • Personal duplicate copies of published DVDs, video cassettes, audio recordings, computer software
  • Interlibrary loan material

Loan Periods

You may choose to have your items on reserve for one of the following Reserve loan periods, please indicate your preference.

Two-hour Reserve: Items may be borrowed at any time for two-hour periods until 30 minutes prior to closing. All material is due 15 minutes prior to closing.

One, Two or Three-day Reserve: Items may be borrowed at any time and are due back within 24 hours for one-day, within 48 hours for two-day, and within 72 hours for three-day loan periods.


Failure to return reserved material on time will incur fines at the rate of $5 per hour (or any portion thereof) charge to a maximum of $100. If library-owned materials are lost, there is a minimum $200 replacement fee that will be added to the accumulated overdue fines.

Removal of Reserves

Personal materials will need to be retrieved at the end of each term unless items will be used for a Course Reserve within the next two terms. UNB Libraries items will be returned to the library stacks at the end of each term.
