Course Reserves (Print and Electronic): Home

What are Course Reserves?

Course Reserves Support at the Caltech Library is a service that assists faculty in making course material available to students. Course reserves can be made available to students in two ways:

Print Reserves - faculty can place materials on print reserve through Adopt a Text (For periods when AdoptaText is closed, contact for reserve requests).  For other problems or questions regarding AdoptaText, please email

Electronic Reserves (e-Reserves) - Journal articles, book chapters/selections, course notes, or other materials can be placed on electronic reserve.  The library will provide an electronic link to the e-reserve for faculty to use in the syllabus or course management page

For more information on course reserves support, please email, call 626-395-3405, or visit the Sherman Fairchild Library circulation desk (Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm).
