Checklist for preparing Electronic Reserves

BEFORE submitting your electronic reserve materials be sure to:

  • Make sure your form is complete
  • Read and sign the copyright statement. It is on the back of the printed form. It is the second page of the online form.
  • Make sure you have a complete bibliographic citation for each title.
  • Make sure submitted copies are complete and legible
  • Allow plenty of time for processing. Please allow a week for relatively short requests. A multi-page request may take longer depending on the current level of outstanding requests.
  • If submitting a multi-page request, please prioritize your items as to date needed. The far left column of the form will help you prioritize the request. Our goal is to have each title available when needed for all requesting instructors.
  • If you have a printed syllabus with a listing of all your titles and the required bibliographic citations AND there are several space lines between each title, you could complete the top of one form, sign the copyright statement, write "See attached" on the form and submit it with the syllabus. The space between the lines is needed to track the files and servers.
  • If you know the article requested is available in full text from one of the library databases, please mention that fact. In that case, we would not need a copy of that article. We can link your reserve directly to the database.
  • Bring the completed and signed "Electronic Reserve Form" and any copies of materials to the McIntyre Circulation Desk. They may also be sent through campus mail to Janet Patterson, McIntyre Library. Please send the form together with the corresponding materials.
  • Access guides for both e-reserve and print and media reserve are available online on this Reserve website, from the "Help" button on the Course/Reserves search screen and in print form in the library.
