Course reserve requests are processed in the order received. To avoid delays, submit your request early, in case items are checked out, missing or need to be purchased. Please allow at least 5 to 7 business days for processing your request.

Online Reserve Request System

Teaching faculty only may use the online reserve request system to submit course reserve requests for print and/or electronic items. If you do not see your course in the system, contact Karen Ronga, Manager of Reserve Services (330-672-7906 | kronga@kent.edu).

You may use EITHER the online reserve request system above OR the individual forms below, but please do NOT use both.  If both are used, it will cause duplicate requests and may slow processing your request.

 

Reserve Request Individual Forms

Download and print the appropriate form.  Fill out the form as completely as possible to avoid processing delays.  You may also type information into Adobe form fields and print completed form as a PDF.  Deliver or send an email attachment of the form to Amanda Evans at the Performing Arts Library.

  • Personal Material Responsibility Disclaimer Form - University Libraries cannot be held responsible or liable for mutilation or theft of instructors' personal materials. Reserves Services takes preventative measures against theft and mutilation of materials placed on reserve, which include barcoding, reserve tapes, and security measures that activate the Library's gate alarm system.

Print copies of these forms are also available at the Performing Arts Library desk.

Information for Faculty

  •  It is your responsibility to be aware of copyright issues, and to read the KSU Library Reserves Policy.
  • Compilations of unidentified material cannot be placed on reserve without complete source and bibliographic information so that we can determine if the library owns a copy. 
  • Titles that are not in the KSU Performing Arts Library collection will be borrowed from other KSU libraries when possible or purchased after review by the Head of the Performing Arts Library.
