We're working on a new and improved Library Website. To see our Beta site, go here.

Put Items on Reserve

  • Faculty can request that heavily-used books (such as required readings or class assignments) be placed on reserve for their classes. To place material on reserve, the instructor must submit a list of the items to the Head of Circulation. 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.
