Answer

A maximum of 30 titles may be placed on Reserve per semester, per class, per faculty member. The total includes print and media items.

The Classroom Guidelines and ALA Model Policy, two of the documents upon which our Reserve policy is based, both clearly indicate that library reserves are not meant to supersede the need for a textbook or coursepack. Reserve materials may be assigned readings or optional.
