Faculty & Staff Resources


The UWW libraries will keep books, videos, and other physical items on reserve for students to use in that library. Learn more about requesting course reserves or download the Reserve Request Form to get started.

All Things Reserves

Andersen Library maintains print course reserves. All reserve items are listed in Research@UWW and can be searched by instructor name or class.

Print/Physical Reserves

Print/physical reserves are held at the Circulation Desk and are organized by instructor. Patrons are asked to provide Circulation staff with the instructor's name and item title when requesting materials. Fines for overdue reserves are $0.25 per hour per item for 3-hour loans and $1.00 per item per day for 3-day or 7-day loans. Any Reserve items not returned seven days after the due date will be considered "lost" and the student will be billed for replacement.

Requesting Course Reserves

Instructors may request that items be placed on Course Reserve by submitting the online Course Reserves Request Form or its print equivalent at the Circulation Desk.

Requests should be submitted at least five business days before the material will be used for class. Instructors may designate the checkout period for each item: 3-hour, 1-day, 3-day, or 7-day. If more than one faculty member has the same item on reserve, the checkout period defaults to the shortest requested time. Items specified as 3-hour check out may not leave the library.

Instructors may place items from the UWW libraries' collection or items from their own personal collection on Reserve. The library assumes no liability for personal items placed on Course Reserve. Materials owned by a non UWW library may not be placed on reserve. If you have any questions regarding Course Reserve services or policies, please contact the Reserve Department at or the Andersen Circulation Desk at (262-472-5511).

Students will need to enter their Net-ID and password to view the linked materials. More information and detailed instructions can be found at Library staff can help you create the necessary links.
