Course Reserves

Reserve Services provides access to material chosen by WSU faculty for use by their students to support instruction. Reserve materials include books, textbooks, book chapters, articles, style manuals, A/V material, lecture notes, syllabi, sample exams, reports, and instructional equipment. Faculty members may place library or personal items on reserve for student use.

There are two formats for Course Reserve materials: Physical and Electronic. Instructors may make material available via either format. Depending upon the format, students will use different systems to search for and/or retrieve the Course Reserve material.


The Media collection consists of cassette tapes, CDs, DVDs, kits, VHS, vinyl records and console games.  Viewing and listening rooms are available to students. Library materials can be delivered to departmental/program offices, but delivery must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.

Interlibrary Loan

ILL works through an extensive network of cooperating libraries to provide access to materials not available in the Stewart Library. This service is available at little or no cost to library patrons. Requests can be placed online through the Interlibrary Loan system (ILLiad).
