Question of the Week: How do I get Reserves?

September 8, 2009 – 7:43 AM
Faculty may put book chapters or articles on electronic reserve.  Search the GIL catalog e-reserves by Instructor, Department, or Class number to find them.  You cannot access an electronic reserve item without a special password, which is set by the instructor and usually handed out in class.

Photocopies or books may be on traditional (print) reserve, kept behind the reserves desk.  At Main, the reserves desk is right next to the circulation desk on the first floor; at Science, ask at the circulation desk on the entry floor.  Reserve materials can be checked out for set periods, usually two hours but sometimes longer (this is set by the faculty member who places the items on reserve).  To obtain traditional reserve material, patrons must present both the call number and appropriate identification (UGACard preferred but also any valid government issued picture ID) to the Reserve Desk staff. Please ask for assistance if you cannot locate the call number of the item you need.

More questions about reserves?  There is lots of information on the reserves web page, including advice about downloading and printing electronic reserves, and guidelines and forms for faculty who want to put materials on reserve.
