Course Reserves

Course reserve materials, which are materials kept in closed stacks behind Tarlton's Circulation Desk, are available to students for limited check-out periods. Faculty may request materials relevant to specific Law School classes be placed on course reserve. (There is no “permanent course reserve” collection.) 

Faculty members may place personal copies of resources on course reserve. All materials will be returned at the end of the semester (unless requested sooner).

You can search current course reserve lists by instructor name and by course name.

Ways to add items to course reserve

Faculty members may place items in any media on course reserve at any time by:

  1. submitting an online course reserve request;
  2. contacting their library liaisons; or
  3. contacting Joe Noel (, 512-232-3801).

The Library will also scan copies of articles or other packet-like materials into a .pdf format so that these materials can be made available.


Removing items from course reserve

All course reserve items are removed from the course reserves collection at the end of the semester.
