Library Resources and Services for Faculty: Textbooks / Reserve Materials

This guide provides information about Luria Library resources and services available to SBCC faculty.

Textbooks and Other Reserve Materials

We make over 2,600 textbooks available for 2-hour checkout by students, through a grant from the SBCC Bookstore and through faculty donations. The library reserve collection also includes many types of supplies. Instructor prepared materials might be included; some resources can be made available physically or electronically for up to two semesters, after which copyright permission is required. To place your course materials on reserve, email circulation@sbcc.edu or call (805) 965-0581 x2630. In addition to placing materials on reserve, you can link directly from your website or course page to an article in a database, by following the instructions for copying article permalinks.
