Reserves General Information

What are Reserves? 

  • Print reserves are typically Books or Articles that faculty members have requested or given to us for in-library use of students. These items may be checked out for a 2-hour period from the circulation desk; students must hand over their Saint Leo IDs while in possession of a reserve item and are not permitted to leave the library.
  • E-Reserves are online items that a faculty member has asked to have placed in one convenient online location for students to access, usually on a LibGuide.

How do I know if my professor has placed materials on reserve? 

How does a Faculty member place materials on reserve for their students?


LibAnswers is an end-to-end online reference platform. It helps ensure that patrons get fast and accurate answers from the librarians at Saint Leo University by allowing them to ask a question or search a knowledge base of already answered questions even when the library is closed.
