1. DEFINITION OF THE TERM
“Course Reserves” are the course-related materials that we put on reserve at your request for the purpose of efficient and broad student access in the Libraries. Reserve materials can be physical (like textbooks or DVDS) or they can be electronic (like scanned chapters or journal articles).
2. BOOK RESERVES HELPS YOU SET THE STAGE FOR IMPROVED CLASS RETENTION RATES
- Your students now have easy, convenient access to assigned readings during expansive library hours.
- Library lending alleviates the need for students to carry heavy books to and from their residence halls.
- It also often circumvents the need for students to purchase/resell expensive materials.
NOTE: This service also works well with personally-owned books, lent by instructors to the library for student circulation, which are returned at semester’s end.
3. ELECTRONIC RESERVES SAVE YOU TIME
- The time-consuming task of chapter and article scanning moves from you to us.
- We ensure your assigned material is student accessible through compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
- Electronic links to assigned reading material are uploaded to Blackboard for you.
NOTE: We are experienced and available to assist with the navigation of copyright law.
