Put Items on Print Reserve

Information for Faculty

Until further notice, Print Reserves will not be available in the BMCC Library. To put materials on Reserve, please see our page about E-Reserves.

  • The BMCC Library purchases course materials from the College Bookstore and puts them 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 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.
