As it is the beginning of the new semester, instructors are beginning to turn in new course reserve material at the circulation desk. Below are a few guidelines:
- When I'm here, please call me to the Circulation desk to receive the materials, even if what they are dropping off seems straightforward to you. Please do this even if I seem to be busy or not officially on backup. (If I'm talking to another staff person, it is okay to interrupt - reserves are top priority for me.)
- If I'm not here, go ahead and accept the new materials. Here is the minimum amount of information I need:
- If I'm not here and an instructor has any questions about course reserve, offer them my business card and encourage them to contact me directly. Because of many reserves changes, it is probably better for you not to guess on the answers.
Course information (instructor, department, course number)
Information about texts to go on reserve (title, author, edition if applicable). If they have holdings information about the book - like call number, barcode, etc - that would be helpful to know as well, but not necessary.
If the professor seems at all confused about what information is needed, please have him or her fill out the "Course Reserve Request" form (located in the black filing cabinet to the right of the Circulation Printer).
Place any requests in my Reserves Inbox, located next to the plant on my desk.
Thank you for your close attention to this matter! Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions, and please comment on this entry to let me know you've read it.
Happy new school year,
