Course Reserves

The Crouch Fine Arts Library offers course reserve services for music and visual art courses, as well as for any other courses that use audiovisual materials from our collections. To place materials on reserve, instructors should contact Jamie Duerksen, Crouch Reserves and Technology Coordinator (, 254.710.6733).

  • Digital reserve items are linked from the Canvas site for the course.

  • Physical reserve items are listed in BearCat, along with their location, call number, and current status. From the BearCat home page, select the Course Reserves link.

Digital Reserves

All audio recordings and some scores placed on reserve are digitized and made available online in Box. PDF images of scores can be viewed and audio files can be streamed quickly and easily in your browser.

Physical Reserves

Physical reserve materials (mainly books, large scores, and video recordings) are available at the CFAL Service Desk (Moody Library Building, Level 3). Loan periods are three hours, three days, or seven days, as requested by the instructor. Most items are checked out for three hours and must be used within the Moody and Jones buildings. Playback equipment is available for audiovisual items.
