Course Reserve Policies (For Students)

The Ivy Tech Valparaiso Campus Library provides course-related services to support the teaching and learning activities of the Ivy Tech community.  The Course Reserve Collection houses materials such as books, textbooks, solution sets, lab manuals, etc., that an instructor has selected for use by students enrolled in a specific course.  The purpose of the Course Reserve Collection is to provide quick access to course-related materials for intensive student use.

Resources are organized by course number on the Reserve shelf located behind the Valparaiso Campus Library Circulation Desk.

Because this material must be available for all members of a course and the college at-large, it is subject to strict rules.

  • Patrons must check-out Reserve items using an Ivy Tech Community College student ID.
  • The check-out period is for in-library use during library business hours only.
  • A hold can not be placed on Reserve materials.
