The availability of Course Reserves at the USF Library offsets the high cost of textbooks for students who suffer financial hardship. Textbooks can raise the cost of education at a public institution like USF by as much as 10% and it is our responsibility to help in whatever ways possible.
The USF Library holds textbooks on reserve for students in courses with an enrollment of 100 or more. These books have been donated by the publisher at the request of the USF Bookstore.
If you teach a course with an enrollment of fewer than 100 students, you may donate your Instructor’s Copy to place on reserve. Simply walk your textbook over to the Reserve Desk or send it through the campus mail to the attention of the Reserves Team at the Circulation Desk, along with your name, the course name, number and section.
