Due to the current limitations on quarantining of physical items in order to follow CDC guidelines and the guidelines set forth by the college, there will be no physical course reserves for the Fall 2020 semester.
During the Fall 2020 semester there will be no physical course reserves. We will accept reserve requests for scanning of physical items that are not available in electronic format or ebooks. Note, however, that we must still ensure that our scanning practices are reasonable and within copyright laws. We are unable to digitize entire copyrighted texts. Articles and/or book chapters requested through ILL cannot be placed on reserve. Please only request materials where an e-copy is not available from the textbook publisher or the library (and note that we will first try to acquire e-access if we do not already own it). Please limit your request to only the portions of a given work that are needed for your course, and these copies should only be distributed to students using Sakai to ensure that access is limited to those enrolled in the course.
To place an item on reserve, please use the Electronic Reserve Request Form. Complete a new reserve form for each section/class. We are processing course material reserve requests as they come in, and appreciate your patience as we work with limited staff and possible delays in receiving ordered materials.
