Pendergrass Course Reserves Request

Please complete the following form to request that a book be placed on course reserve for your class.  Please submit your request at least 2-4 weeks prior to the start of the semester. If you find that you are having trouble placing your textbooks on reserve, please contact Pendergrass Library at (865)974-7338 or email us at

Due to COVID-19, physical items such as books will be quarantined upon return. We encourage instructors to continue using e-resources for course reserves for Spring 2021 to ensure timely access to all students, including those taking courses online. Links to online content may be posted to your course Canvas site.

If only a few chapters from a book are needed, you may request scans through DMS. If an entire book is needed, you may submit a request for an e-book purchase through the online suggest-a-purchase form. You may also contact your library subject liaison to request an e-book or to find an alternate text that is available electronically.
