Updated Library Services: Reserves Information for Faculty


Reserve Materials

Course Reserves: 

Physical reserves are not currently available. Contact us If you need a Reserve item. Our staff will work with you to meet your request.


Textbook Reserve Collection: 

The print Textbook Reserve Collection is not currently available. Librarians are working with faculty to make some of these resources available on Blackboard. We will work with faculty to find electronic versions of resources for use as course reserves.


What can Faculty do?

What does this mean for faculty? 

Faculty are strongly encouraged to scan course reading materials themselves as needed to upload to their course or find substitutes for books and materials on reserve. Faculty can request their reserve materials be returned via USPS in order to scan course materials. 

Please contact the Library if you have any additional needs or questions.

Scanning Materials

How do I scan materials for my students? 

If you don’t have a scanner at home, many mobile phone apps are available to create PDF scans with your smartphone! These include CamScanner, TurboScan, Scannable (for iPhone–linked to Evernote), and Microsoft Office Lens (for Android). 

After creating a PDF, upload it to your course page, including the following disclaimer: “This scan is being provided as part of our effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. It is for your personal use only, and is only intended for use during the time when College public health measures prevent access to your personal copy or a copy on physical reserve at the library. Please discard this copy once you have access to your personal copy or to the physical copy at the library, and do not share it.” 

Please CONTACT US if you have questions.
