Services for Faculty

Library Instruction Request

Library faculty members provide instruction in the use of the library to all teaching faculty and their classes. To schedule a session for your class, fill out the Library Instruction Request Form or contact Instructional Services at 351-1529. The faculty member must attend the instruction session.

Course Reserves

Fill out a Course Reserve Request Form and bring it with your materials to the Access Services desk. If you have an electronic version of the material you can email the files to Ashley Certis (ashley.certis@unco.edu) or Sarah Vaughn (sarah.vaughn@unco.edu).  Please allow at least 48 hours for materials to be processed. All material must be accompanied by complete citation information.

Print Reserve

Print Reserve materials can be books, articles, audiovisual materials, educational kits, or other materials either from the Library’s circulating collection or owned by the professor or department.

Please note that stickers and book pockets will be attached to personal materials for Reserve use. The Library assumes no responsibility for replacing personal materials should they be damaged or lost.

Electronic Reserve

In addition to Print Reserve services, we offer an Electronic Reserve service. Electronic Reserve allows students to access course materials online.


Check Out Materials

With a valid UNC ID card, faculty members may borrow books for a full semester. Faculty may renew materials an indefinite number of times if no "hold" has been placed on the item.

Faculty may check out videotapes and DVDs for one week, with one renewal.

Research assistants may check out materials from the library by special arrangement of the faculty member.

Renew Materials

You can renew your materials:

  • Online through the My Account link in the Libraries online catalog
  • By phone at 970-351-2671
  • In-person at the main desk in Michener or Skinner Libraries

Overdue or Lost Materials

An item not renewed or returned after 28 days past the due date is considered lost. A replacement fee of $80.00 per item will be sent to Accounts Receivable. If the lost item is returned to the Library within one year of being declared lost, the $80.00 will be refunded. Faculty with 10 or more lost items will have borrowing privileges withheld. Privileges will be restored upon satisfactory restitution.

Ordering Materials for the Libraries' Collections

To request materials for the University Libraries' collection, please contact your subject librarian.
