Course Reserves: Spring 2024

Instructions and FAQ



During the pandemic the USC Libraries switched to offer course reserves electronically. If we could not purchase an e-copy, IDD temporarily extended scanning for course reserves from the customary two chapters from a single work to four chapters from a single work. 

All reserve desks are now open.  We will continue prioritizing e-format for reserves where possible, either from our existing collections or through acquisitions. Where e-formats are not available and cannot be acquired electronically, we will process physical copies for course reserves. We continue to scan no more than 2 chapters from a single work as per copyright guidelines.
