Discuss Academic Integrity Issues with Students

Put Items on Course Reserve
Place personally-owned or college-owned books, videos, articles and other materials on reserve for your students at any LSCS library. You may complete a form in person at the library or you can fill out this library reserve request form (PDF) online, save an electronic copy for your files, print it, and take it to the library along with the materials.
Search for reserves by item title in the library catalog.
