Reserves

Instructions for Faculty

Books or photocopies to be placed on reserve should be brought to the Circulation desk in the library or email laura.heffner@alvernia.edu. Only one copy of a photocopied item may be placed on reserve. Faculty should complete a reserve materials form for each item. These forms are available online or at the library circulation counter. 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. Faculty using Blackboard can request that a reserve reading be made available electronically.

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.

Instructions for Students

  • Students can access reserve materials either at the circulation desk or through Blackboard if the instructor has made the copy available electronically.
  • Reserves are available for in-library use only.
  • Students must have their library card with them in order to access reserves.
  • Students who fail to return a reserve item will be charged the replacement cost of the item.
