Course Reserves

Course reserves are instructor-selected materials put on reserve for a specific course.


Lamar University and LIT instructors place articles, tests, and other class materials in E-Reserves for students to access at their convenience. To login, your instructor must first give you a password. For questions or assistance, email

Reserves on First Floor

These are physical reserve items held on the 1st floor of the library.  Course reserves may include library-owned materials (books, CDs, videos) and instructor-supplied materials (copies of articles, books, sample tests, etc.).  Ask at the Circulation Desk for assistance with these items.
