University of Connecticut University Libraries Music and Dramatic Arts Library


The Music & Dramatic Arts Library (MDAL) Circulation Desk maintains a selection of required course reserve materials, as well as online digital audio reserves, in support of the music and dramatic arts curriculums.

Video streams and electronic course reserves (ECR) for music and dramatic arts course reserves are maintained by the Babbidge Library Reserve Services department.

Reserve Processing

Submit ALL requests for reserve materials online through the Library Resources tool in HuskyCT.

Items dropped off at the MDAL Circulation Desk for reserve processing must have an accompanying online request submitted through the Library Resources tool in HuskyCT.

Hard copy reserve lists are no longer accepted.

Deadline for submitting Reserve Requests

Avoid processing delays by submitting your reserve requests AT LEAST two weeks before the date stipulated in your syllabus. If a purchase is necessary, then allow for more time.
