Regular Reserves

Submit your list of reserve items 7 business days in advance of the first day of classes, and our staff will pull these items for you. After that, you will need to retrieve your own reserve items.

Help us find it

To help us pull the correct items, fill out a regular reserves form for each course. To promote sustainability, we have created a paperless Reserves Webform. Please provide the call numbers, authors, titles, and (if needed) edition of the items you need pulled. Please indicate how long we should keep these items on reserve. 

Unavailable Items

  • If an item is checked out, we can recall it for you.  
  • If an item is missing, we can search it for you. 
  • If you are aware that W&M does not own this item, please indicate that on the form and we will purchase it.

Faculty checkout of reserve items

Faculty members may check out their own course reserve materials for longer than the assigned loan period. If you want to check out reserve materials that are on another professor's reserve list for longer than the specified loan, you must obtain written permission from that colleague.
