Q. Can I put a new textbook/item on reserve for my students?
Yes, however access to faculty reserve items will be severely limited this semester, due to the coronavirus. Library materials must be quarantined for at least three days before they can be borrowed by the next person, which inhibits quick turnaround. In addition, the Library's physical facilities are not open, so students will not be able to photocopy, scan or read reserve materials, or view DVDs, onsite. It is recommended that faculty scan print resources (within copyright limits) and post them on their Blackboard courses. Librarians will be happy to assist faculty members in locating alternative resources that students can access online.
If placing an item on reserve is the only option available, please e-mail the Librarians at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for delivery of your reserve item to the Library. Once it has been placed on reserve, students can submit requests to have a section scanned and sent by e-mail, or to borrow the item, using the Library to Go PLUS request form: https://bit.ly/3j79cPV Students may choose free home delivery of borrowed items, or contactless pickup in Room CC-114 during Library to Go service hours.
