Personal Copy: Any item that belongs to you can be placed on the Reserves list. They will be labeled and barcoded by the Library.
Library Copy: You can request that an item the Library owns be placed on your Course Reserves list.
E-Book: The purchasing of e-book titles for Course Reserve is a new Library initiative. The Library will purchase electronic copies of required course titles when available. Traditional textbooks are excluded from this initiative as libraries cannot purchase electronic versions for campus-wide access. Make a request using the Online Course Reserves Purchase Request Form.
If another instructor has an item on Reserve that you would like to add to your Course Reserves list, you must obtain permission from the other instructor to utilize the resource, then submit a request to the Library.
The Library encourages you to tell your students that you have items on Course Reserve. Whether the items are required or supplemental, tell your students to utilize the resources. We will be giving you circulation statistics for each item at the end of every semester. If you'd like help finding ways to market your resources, let us know and we'd be more than happy to assist you!
Starting Fall 2013, the Leeward CC Library will be going paperless and conducting the entire Course Reserves process online! Below is a detailed description of this new process:
Granted that all requested information is provided and correct, the item will be processed and placed on the Course Reserves shelf within 24 hours of receipt of the item.
*An e-mail will be sent to you once your item is available for use.
**Please remember that your request is only valid for one semester. At the end of the Summer sessions and the Fall semester, the Library will send out an email asking instructors who had items on the Course Reserve shelf if they would like to leave those items on Reserve for the following semester. If there is no response, the item(s) will be returned.
Our end-of-the semester procedure has been re-vamped to better service you and your students! We have enacted the following policy to ensure that the Course Reserves process is as streamlined and beneficial as possible:
When filling out a request in the Fall semester, you will have the option to place the item on Course Reserve for both the Fall and following Spring semester. After the end of the Spring semester, the item will be returned to your office.
-You must fill out one Course Reserve Request Form for each item you want to place on your Course Reserves list.
-For personal titles, the Library is not able to replace lost copies. We do, however, have procedures in place to minimize the risk of loss.
