Reserve Services for Students

The Course Reserves Service handles all print, electronic and multmedia materials that are placed on reserve for all the classes offered through Molloy College.  The Reserve/E-Reserve can be accessed on a course by course basis via Canvas.

E-Reserve offers digital copies of book chapters and journal articles that faculty would like to make available for students 24/7. Students can access E-reserve materials from anywhere with an available internet connection. 

All reserve books and multimedia reserves are located in the ILL/Reserves/Media services area within the library.

Access to reserve materials is limited to the faculty member for a particular course as well as the students enrolled in that course for which the materials have been placed on reserve.

Reserve Policies and Procedures


·         To check out reserve materials, you must be enrolled for the current semester with an updated Molloy ID.

·         Students can only request two reserve books at a time.

·         Course Reserve items may be checked out for either two hours or longer depending on the reserve policy for that item.        

 ·        Reserve materials may be renewed once as needed if no other students are waiting to use those reserve materials.
