Putting an item on reserve

Faculty members who want to place books or other physical materials on reserve for their classes should contact Adam Hybbert at the Library Services Desk: 605-688-5108 or

Electronic items should be placed within a course on D2L. If you would like to link to an article or other online item from a library database, it is important to use a permanent URL (this is not always the URL in your browser's address bar). Help in finding a permanent URL for articles can be found on our Reserve Materials Guide. Uploading articles or book chapters to D2L (as opposed to linking to another source) is subject to copyright. Please make sure your use falls within fair use using a fair use checklist.

For help adding links or documents to D2L, contact Instructional Design Services.
