Course Reserve Instructions

To ensure timely completion of your Course Reserve request please:

  • Complete the online or paper Course Reserve Request Form for all materials.
  • Provide clear photocopies.
  • Include one-sided copies only (please no back-to-back copies).
  • Include the complete bibliographic citation on the front page of all electronic reserve items. This does not apply to exams, syllabi, or items you have written that have not been published.
  • Indicate the checkout period for each item (3-hour, 1 day, 3-days, 7-days, or electronic).
  • (If more than one faculty member has placed the same item on reserve, then the check out period will default to the shortest time requested).
  • Use the same title on the reserve title as you use in class and on your syllabus.
  • Submit your request at least one week before it is needed for class.
  • Do not staple copies.

Please follow these copyright guidelines when submitting reserve requests:

  • A single chapter from a book.
  • A single article from a journal or periodical.
  • One short story, short essay, or short poem from a collective work.
  • One chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon, or picture from a book, periodical or newspaper (one per book or journal issue).
  • A short excerpt (not to exceed 20% of the total work which is not divided into chapters).

Further instructions:

  • In most cases articles from library databases can be directly linked to a reserves list. If you would like an article linked to your Reserve List please provide a full citation in your request and we will construct the link.
  • If the library does not own the item to be placed on reserve, you must physically bring the item to the library.
  • This also applies to chapters of books to be put on reserve. If the library does not own the source item, you must photocopy the chapter to be put on e-reserve and give it to the library Circulation Desk.
  • If the size of an email is smaller than 10 MB, you may attach pdf copies of articles and email them to reserve@uww.edu, making sure to cite the source of the chapter and provide page numbers.
  • Materials owned by another library may not be placed on reserve.
  • Andersen Library is not responsible for damage to personal copies placed on reserve.
