If we are required to purchase a textbook, the library should have a copy of it too. There is no Engineering Economic Analysis, 11th edition, but CIVE240 requires it.
Thanks for writing. I know that textbooks are an enormous expense for students, and many rely on the library’s course reserves system to help them through the term. Books and other materials go on course reserve when your instructor or department requests it. If we don’t hear from your instructors, we don’t put their stuff on reserve.
If there’s one thing we know about students, it’s that they want more course readings on reserve. Help them out by getting your summer course reserves squared away as soon as possible.
Starting next term, those with more than $15 in library fines will not be able to check out reserve books.
Have you ever needed to read a chapter for class but not been able to get the book you need from the Library's reserve collection because a classmate has kept it out past their time? It happens too often at Hagerty Library so starting in the Spring quarter, once you reach $15 in fines, you won't be able to check out reserve books.
Spring term starts in three weeks!
Want your students to get a leg up on spring term reading? Help them out by getting your course reserves set up ASAP. It's never too early.
Please don't forget: we've got a lot of course reserves to manage here at the library. The more time you can give us to get it all into the system, the better prepared we'll be to get your students exactly what they need.
Putting readings on reserve is pretty easy. Just fill out the form.
It's time for faculty to start preparing their course reserves material for winter term. Too soon you say? Well, maybe not.
It would be nice to have an overnight borrowing option for textbooks on reserve. Especially during midterms or finals, where pulling all-nighters can be the norm. One possible option would be to allow textbooks borrowed after midnight to roll-over to the next day, and require them to be returned by 8 am.
Thanks for your thoughtful suggestion. The borrowing period for reserve items are determined by the faculty members who put the items on reserve. Some books have overnight borrowing periods.
