Instructions for Faculty
Books or photocopies to be placed on reserve should be given to John Nelka (x8490) in the library. Faculty should complete a reserve materials form for each item. These forms are available online or at the Library Circulation Desk. In addition to instructor, course number and course name, the form includes space for the title of the reserve book or photocopy. This title should correspond to the title used in the course syllabus or assignment. This will aid the students in locating the correct reading. Please allow 48 hours for the reserves to be processed.
Instructors should retrieve their reserve materials by the end of the semester. The library staff will be able to inform the instructor the number of times an item has circulated; however, no information regarding the identity of students who checked-out the material will be available.
Faculty using Blackboard can post a list of articles that are available electronically by creating durable links. See How to Create a Link to an EBSCO or ProQuest Article for instructions.
