Reserve Services Collection
The Reserve collection is a temporary one supporting University teaching programs. Books and media are accessed at the iDesk at your campus’ library. The Reserve collection includes the following types of materials:
- Books, DVD’s, CD’s and etc. required for scheduled courses
- Non-course related materials – primarily selected University reports.
In addition, faculty may link to ebooks, chapters of ebooks, video and audio streams, and articles, which students access on-line through HuskyCT. Certain course related materials may also be purchased as Course Packs sold at the UConn Co-op .
Your ID Card
A University ID or a UConn Libraries Borrower ID is required to borrow Reserve materials.
Reserve materials circulate for one of the following
- 3 HOURS, NOT TO LEAVE THE LIBRARY
- 1 DAY
- 3 DAYS
- 7 DAYS
Requests for books and DVD’s are submitted by faculty electronically. Reserve staff make every attempt to process lists submitted on time before the start of the semester. Lists received after the start of the semester are placed in a processing queue. Materials are processed out of queue order only under extenuating circumstances. Late lists and incomplete or incorrect information in lists can cause delays in making Reserve materials available to student users.
Ordering New Materials
During this time of limited funding instructor’s are requested to draw Reserve materials, whenever possible, from the Library’s physical or online collections or from the instructor’s personal collection. While there is funding to purchase select items not already owned by the Library or the instructor, these funds are limited and need to be expended judiciously. Priority for acquiring new streaming video is given to online, blended, and distance learning classes.
It can take several weeks to order, receive, and process a new title, so ample lead time must be allowed when ordering new titles for Reserve. Library policy permits the purchase of 1 copy of a title per 20 students up to a maximum of 3 copies per title. The Library does not purchase textbooks required for classes.
For most efficient processing please provide complete citations without abbreviations.
