Course Reserves

General information

Course reserves are learning materials instructors put together for their current courses. These books cannot be borrowed during the current semester.

You can search for course reserves in the Primo Knowledge Portal by selecting “only TU Course Reserves” from the drop-down menu. (Enter your instructor’s name and/or the seminar name as the search term). Instructors are sent a direct link to their course reserve in Primo, which they can then share with students, for instance in ISIS.

Course reserves can include:

  • Physical materials: These items are made available on site at the library and cannot be borrowed during the current semester.
  • Digital materials (e-books, e-journals, and accessible websites): These materials are linked in the course reserve list in Primo.

Putting materials on reserve

We are happy to make course materials available for your current classes.

Please send the citations you require via email. You can find the contact information for your subject area in How to put materials on reserve (items 13 and 14).

Course reserves in the Central Library are located in the Copy Center on the first floor. However, course reserves can be made available in all of our locations.
