The library offers print and electronic course readings to support instruction and research.

Print Reserves

Books and DVDs are placed on reserve at the library’s front desk at the request of faculty and removed at the end of each academic semester. Loan periods are set by instructors as three, 24, or 72 hours.

Electronic Reserves

Electronic Reserves will be decommissioned as of October 2022. Please refer to this FAQ and contact reserves@middlebury.edu with any questions.
