Guidelines for Faculty Submitting Requests for Reserves

Course Reserves will be accessible while the course is in session.  Using the password that Gill Library provides, access your Course Reserves page from the ERes section of the Library homepage http://eres.cnr.edu each semester before assigning Reserve readings to your students.  Be sure the Library has current information about the course.  Allow 5 business days for the Library to process your request.  Allow for delays at the beginning of each semester. Contact the Reserves Department at cnreres@cnr.edu with any questions.

Gill Library will not place the following items on Reserve

  • Items owned by other libraries borrowed directly or via interlibrary loan

  • Course packs or compilations of copyrighted materials

Complete all requested information on the appropriate Reserves Request Form for the item(s) being placed on Reserve.  You may list more than one item on a form in the spaces provided.  Submit the form(s) with the item(s) to the Reserves Department in Gill Library.

You may include a copy of your syllabus or course outline, which the Library will scan into ERes and make available to your students on your Course Reserve page.  It will also be available to librarians who may use it to assist your students.

You may submit your request using Online Reserves Request Forms from the ERes section of the Gill Library homepage.
