1. We apologize for the inconvenience, but at this time we cannot accept reserves for hard copy materials. This may change later depending on restrictions, but for now, all reserves must be in an electronic format.
2. Please check if the books you need are already available in the catalog as ebooks or available online. Additional options for electronic editions are available via Open Educational Resources and Open Access Materials.
3. If the item is only available as hard copy, we may be able to create digital copies. Please limit these submissions to required reading and be specific about what sections you need, providing page numbers if you have them. If submitting items from previous semesters, we will prioritize by which items were most circulated. Please be patient as the scanning may take some time due to additional workload.
4. If you already have a scan from a previous semester, please copy it over or upload it when you submit the reserve item. For more information on copying reserves, please see the library website and our instructor's guide for detailed instructions. If the ereserve was used in a previous semester, we may still have it on file if you need help locating it.
5. If the university does not currently own the item you wish to place on reserve, we will try to purchase it as an ebook. However not all materials may be available for purchase in digital form.
6. We will see if films and music that we have on DVD/CD are available streaming, as we do not have the ability to digitize these items. Once the library opens for curbside pick-up, we may be able to lend these items.
7. If you have a personal copy of a book the library does not own that you would like us to digitize for reserves, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange mail-in or drop-off.
