Reserves are supplementary course materials that Case faculty and staff put on hold for Case students to use. These materials are located at the Service Desk of Kelvin Smith Library and are only accessible during desk hours.
1. How can I have a TA or graduate assistant submit items for reserve?
An email should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Course number the student is to have access to and the student’s name and network ID. The instructor and student will be notified when this process is complete.
2. How long will it take to acquire items requested for purchase?
Items requested for purchase take 2-3 weeks to acquire. Rare or out-of-print items may take a little longer.
3. Will the library purchase a copy of the textbook for my class?
Textbooks as a general rule are not purchased by the library. If an Instructor has a legally acquired copy of a course text they are willing to supply, we can accept it as a Personal copy for student use.
4. Where can I add electronic reserve material for my class?
Faculty looking to add supplement electronic material may do so in BlackBoard.
5. What can I do if I wish to add an item to my reserves that is already reserved for another class?
You should first check with the instructor where that item currently resides. Once permission has been secured from the originating professor, send an email to the Reserve Staff at email@example.com so that the item can be booked for your class showing.
