Faculty and Staff Information: Reserves

Reserves

Most faculty are now putting links to readings and film clips on their Moodle site.  To stay within copyright guidelines, we recommend that you provide links to articles or chapters of books from within the databases that we license for TU community use.  These are often referred to as perma links or stable links.  If you need instructions on how to do this please see your librarian.

  • Check out films in Films on Demand

  • Academic Search Complete, JSTOR and many other databases with full text articles are available in a single list.

  • And of course we have around 200,000 e-books that you can find in the catalog.  Please let us know if you intend to use an ebook for class reading assignments so that we can be sure that we have licensed enough copies.  We license most ebooks for one-at-a-time use due to cost. Just like with physical reserves, it will take us a couple of days to check and then license additional copies.

If you need to place physical items on reserve, please bring them to the circulation desk and complete a reserve request form.  Remember that we need two full business days to prepare materials for reserve and add them to the database so that they can be checked out.   Dropping an item off at the service desk does not mean that it is immediately available to students.
