Course Reserves

While the Parkland Library cannot be your primary source for textbooks, some instructors do place copies "ON RESERVE" for in library use only.

Due to COVID, we cannot currently allow students to handle print reserve material. We will scan limited amounts for you, please submit a request.

Faculty: How to Add Material to Reserves

Start by using this form.

If the materials are already owned by the library we will pull them and process them for Reserves.

If you are providing the materials please bring them to the Main Desk of the library and leave them for the attention of Pamela King. If you have questions you can contact Pamela via email or at 217-351-2472.

At busy times such as the first few weeks of the semester, it may take up to a week for materials to be processed for Reserves.
