Saint Francis University Library

Reserve Collection

The Reserve Collection houses materials in great demand, which are mainly books and supplementary kits recommended as course readings. All these items can be browsed here.

Principal Readings

Principal readings listed in the course syllabuses are major texts which are selected by the academic staff and are used for study purposes. These materials are of particular importance as they are the key resources of information that support students’ learning in the courses. Most of them are available for loan for a specific period, the length of which depends on the loan rules set by the Library.


The ReadingList@Library service provides one-stop access to course resources, including principal readings and other references, upon the creation of a reading list by the Library and academic staff. For instructions of use, please see the Reading List guide.

Academic staff are most welcome to place teaching materials in the Collection for a designated period by filling out the Reserve Collection Recommendation Form and return it to the Circulation Counter.
