Reserve Desk

Course Reserve

The course reserve allows instructors to place material in the library for students to access. Reserve material normally consists of items already owned by the library or items owned by the instructor. Reserve material can be checked out by students for a maximum of four hours but may not be taken out of the library.

To place material on reserve:

  • Review copyright laws. http://www.slcc.edu/riskmanagement/docs/Copyright04.pdf
  • Bring material to the library and fill out a reserve form. Reserve forms require the title of the article or book, the author, number of copies and the instructor’s information.
  • Be sure to specify if you want the material on both regular reserve and e-reserve (see below).
  • Once the book is handed over to the librarians, it will be barcoded and put into the system. This can take 1-5 days to accomplish depending on the amount of reserve material.
  • If the material is owned by the instructor, please pick up material at the end of the semester. If the material is owned by the library, it will automatically be removed and placed back on the shelves.

eReserve allows students to access material online through the library Website. The benefit of eReserve is that it permits students to view material outside of the library and is not restricted by time constraints.

In order to place material on e-reserve:

  • Review copyright laws.http://www.slcc.edu/riskmanagement/docs/Copyright04.pdf
  • Bring material to be placed on reserve to the library and fill out a reserve form. Just as in regular reserve, the title of the article or book, author, number of copies and instructor information are required to fill out the form.
  • Be sure to specify if you want the hard copy as well as the electronic copy in our reserve collection. If you only want the material on eReserve, you may return to pick up your material after 5 days.
  • Obtain a password for students to access the information.
  • Allow time for the librarian to scan your material. Scanning material into the Website takes 2-5 days depending on amount of material.

If placing a hard copy on reserve, be sure to retrieve material after the semester ends.
