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).

Online Reserves

All audio recordings on reserve, as well as some scores and video recordings, are made available online in Box.  There, they can be viewed or played directly in the web browser.  If requested by the instructor, the Box files can be linked from the Canvas site for the course to create a seamless experience for students. 

Online reserves for textual materials are managed by Library and Academic Technology Services.  Information and a request form are available here.  If your course uses both audiovisual and textual materials and you prefer to have one point of contact, you may send all of your requests to Crouch. 

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 or three 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.

Physical reserve items are listed by course and instructor in OneSearch, along with their location, call number, and current status.
