Faculty: place your copies of textbooks on reserve

Nov. 19, 2012 – Newman Library has completed a very successful textbook pilot during the fall semester. We pulled over 1,000 textbooks from our collection and placed them on reserve for student use in two-hour time blocks. This service has been very popular and in the first month we had over 2,000 checkouts! 

We would like to expand our textbook reserves and are asking for your help. At the beginning of each semester, if you have an extra copy of the textbook or can obtain a copy from your publisher please consider placing the textbook on reserve at Newman Library (or one of the branch libraries). 

  • Complete and sign the reserve form for your textbook
  • Drop your textbook(s) off with a copy of the completed form in your campus mail for delivery. (For multiple textbooks, we are more than willing to provide pickup service.) Email us to make arrangements.
  • If you need more help or have questions, contact us

We appreciate any support you and your department can give us and by extension the students, to provide this service.
