Welcome to IPFW Helmke Library's Course Reserve system.
The Library's Course Reserve system is used only for items which cannot be digitized due to copyright restrictions, such as most books and DVDs.
To place physical item, such as a book or DVD, on Reserve in the Library, please complete the online Reserve form.
You will receive a confirmation e-mail for each Reserve request.
If you are placing a personally-owned item on Reserve, please print the confirmation e-mail and attach it to the item before sending it to the library.
Reserve requests for library-owned material do not require a printout of the confirmation e-mail.
Instructors should use IPFW's learning management system, Blackboard Learn, to provide students with online access to other digitized course materials, such as articles and book chapters. Consult the copyright and Fair Use resources listed below to insure your compliance with copyright law.
