Put Items on Print Reserve

Information for Faculty

  • The BMCC Library put course materials on reserve before each semester.
    • Please check our catalog to see if we already have the texts on reserve for your course before filling out the form below.
  • Faculty can request that heavily-used books (such as required readings or class assignments) be placed on reserve for their classes.
    • Due to processing time and high volume, faculty should submit requests at least two (2) weeks prior to the beginning of a new semester. Requests will be dated and processed in the order of their receipt.
  • Books not already owned by BMCC Library should be ordered well in advance using the Book Purchase Request Form. This will ensure proper processing and avoid confusion and delay.
  • If the library does not own the required books, faculty members may also place their personal books on reserve.
    • These must also be submitted before the start of the semester. Personal material must be retrieved at the end of the semester.
