Print Reserves

Print reserves are held at the Circulation Desk and are organized by Instructor. Patrons are asked to provide Circulation staff with the instructor's name and item title when requesting materials. Instructors may designate the checkout period for each item: 3-hour, 1-day, 3-days, or 7-days. If more than one faculty member has the same item on reserve, the check out period defaults to the shortest requested time. Items specified as 3-hour check out may not leave the library.

Fines for overdue reserves are $0.25 per hour per item for 3 hour loans and $1.00 per item per day for 3 or 7 day loans. Any Reserve items not returned seven days after the due date will be considered "lost" and will be billed for replacement.

Requesting Course Reserves

Instructors may request that items be placed on Course Reserve by submitting a Reserve Request form, available online or at the Circulation Desk. Requests should be submitted at least five business days before the material will be used for class. Instructors may place items from Andersen Library's collection or their own personal items on reserve. We assume no liability for personal items placed on Course Reserve. Materials owned by another library may not be placed on reserve.

Linking Articles from Online Databases

In most cases direct links for articles in library databases can be created for your course materials. Students will need to enter their NetID and password to view the linked materials. For additional assistance contact the Reserve Desk (262-472-5512) or Reference Desk (262-472-1032) or follow the directions at http://libguides.uww.edu/directlk.
