Faculty Support: Course Reserves

This page provides resources and support options for Napa Valley College faculty.

Course Reserves

The NVC Library maintains a collection of course reserves for currently enrolled students to borrow.

If you have items in course reserves that are not needed this semester, please pick them up at the library at your earliest convenience.

To add an item to Course Reserves:

Loan Periods:

If there is one copy: only available for use in the library for 2 hours (can be renewed if no one is waiting).

If there are multiple copies: additional copies can be made available for 2-hour, 24-hour, or 7 day loans.

Purchasing Books:

If you need the library to purchase the book, please indicate that in the form. Purchase decisions are based on need and funding, which is very limited. Please try to get a copy from your department or the publisher before asking the library to purchase. 

Electronic Textbooks:

The library is unable to purchase electronic copies of textbooks. Please see our Open Resources Guide for information on finding and selecting free electronic textbooks.
