Course Reserves

Many students depend upon library reserves. If you have an extra copy of a textbook, or can get one from the publisher, please consider donating or lending it to library reserve.

Donate or Loan to Library Reserves

If you have copies of a textbook that you can donate or loan to the library, please bring them to the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor of the LRC. You will be asked to fill out a form, or you may download it now and bring it with you.

Tell Us What You're Using

Even if you cannot donate a copy, please let us know what your textbooks are so that if we own a copy we can associate it with your course section. Simply fill out our online form, or, if you prefer, come to the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor of the LRC. Note: this form is for courses at the main campus only. For library reserves at West Sacramento Center, please contact Ashu Mishra (916-375-5505); at the Davis Center, please contact Mikaela Huang (530-747-5235).
