Music Course Reserves at the Music Library

Locating Course Reserves

Search by Professor or Course Number or locate your course reserves through MyUW.

Books are self-service and will be located on our Open Reserves shelving in the upstairs portion of the Music Library.

Recordings and scores are located downstairs in the Music Listening Center and may be retrieved by giving Music Library staff the class number and item call number.

    Placing Materials on Reserve

      Reserve Request Form:
      Physical materials
      (books, scores, CDs, VHS, etc.), please fill out the Reserves Request Form
    • Requests should be submitted using the form above at least one week prior to point of need to allow sufficient time for processing, including time to recall items which are checked-out.   Additions to your list may be made throughout the quarter by emailing musiclib@uw.edu or contacting reserve processing staff at the Music Library.

    • Personal copies: Personally owned copies of books, scores, recordings, videos, journals or photocopies (within copyright compliance) may be placed on reserve at the owner's risk.

    • Reserve fines apply to all users, including faculty. We will gladly extend reserve loan periods to faculty upon request. Please let us know if you will need an extended loan when you are checking out your reserve materials.

    • Acquiring new material for Reserves: If an item is not owned by the Libraries, we may be able to purchase a copy. While Reserve orders are RUSH processed (typically at 1.5 times the price), they may still take several weeks to arrive and be available for use. Please email us at musiclib@uw.edu with any inquiries.
