The Reserves desk is located at the Library Circulation counter on the 2nd floor of the Library. Faculty may place Library or personal materials on Reserve for students in their classes. Items will be distributed to students with a valid I.D. Materials can also be scanned and made available as electronic reserves. The Library recommends materials placed on Reserve be items expected to receive heavy use by students during the semester to satisfy class assignments.
Placing Items on Reserve:
Faculty may submit Reserves Requests electronically or in person. Faculty should drop off books or articles at the Reserves Unit. Print articles to be scanned may also be brought to library. Faculty may choose to send their materials with a student assistant. Faculty or student assistants will need to fill out a Reserve Information Card, which provides information the Reserves Assistant needs to process items being added to the Reserves Collection. Faculty can choose from the following loan options: 1, 2 or 3 hours and 1, 2 or 3 days.
Retention and Removal
Faculty have the option to remove material which they have placed on Reserve at any time. Library books will be returned to the stacks when no longer needed as a reserve item and their location in the library will be reflected in the Library catalog. Faculty owned items removed from Reserves will be purged from the Library's Reserves database. Scanned articles will be deleted or rendered inaccessible.
Items remain on reserve one semester. Faculty will then receive a list of items from the Reserves Assistant which they had placed on reserve for each of their classes with an inquiry asking which items should be retained for the following semester.
