Course Reserve Contracts

The Dick Smith Library's Course Reserve collection is located behind the Circulation Desk.  This service allows faculty members to pull our materials as well as provide their own items specifically as supplemental material for their class.  We have varying loan periods as options so that all students have access to materials.  In the past, a physical contract has always been required.  This semester, we have gone digital!

Faculty can now submit their course reserve contracts online by visiting our faculty support page on Course Reserves.  All you have to do is fill out the form's three sections and it will automatically be emailed to the library member in charge of reserves.  Then all you have to worry about is providing the materials.  If it's physical, items can be delivered through campus mail or dropped off in person.  If it's for an E-Reserve, simply email the file to Kym Schow at  E-Reserves will require a password, and one will be generated for you unless you contact Kym and ask for something specific.  Passwords cannot be submitted through the form for security reasons.

We hope this extra service makes things a little bit easier for faculty to make items accessible for their students.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Kym Schow via email or at 254-968-9871.
