Course Reserves

Course Reserves is a service available to current National Louis University faculty and instructors to provide students access to assigned readings. Course Reserves primarily include books, journal articles, and book chapters, but other formats will be considered. For questions about Course Reserves, please contact the University Library

Print Reserves

Print reserves are books or videos held in the library and are room use only for a limit of two hours per day.  Print reserves are only available at the Chicago and Wheeling libraries. Reserve options include materials either owned by the library or are personal copies provided by the instructor and/or the program. The University Library does not purchase print texts for reserve. Instructors may request print reserve items by contacting the library.

Electronic Reserves

Electronic Reserves are readings that are made available to students online. Reserves can be made available within two weeks of the request. Electronic Reserves are password-protected and require an active NLU username and password for access. If you would like the library to place readings on Electronic Reserve for your students, please fill out this form.

Readings will be hosted in the University Library’s Course Reserve system and a link to the reading will be provided that can be used in the course shell. Readings hosted in the Course Reserve System require copyright permission to be requested for every term they are used. The University Library submits copyright permission on behalf of the faculty member placing the request, and copyright permission fees are paid for by the college.  

You will receive notification about your submission via e-mail. Please fill out one form per course, listing all the readings you would like on reserve. For questions about this, please contact the University Library at

Students can search for existing electronic course reserves by course name or instructor.
