August 6. That’s the deadline to guarantee that your assignments will be available on Reserve to your students for the fall term. It’s easy! Faculty and TA’s, just click on the library tab in myNEU to place your Course Reserves with the library. What are Course Reserves? Materials that faculty members ask the library to set aside for class reading. It’s not just for reading, however! Faculty also may set aside DVDs, CDs, and VHS for class viewing and listening. If you’re a faculty member using Blackboard, you may wish to make the course readings in your syllabus into a hotlink in addition to putting photocopies on reserve. There’s no deadline for that! The hotlink approach works best when: 1. The reading assignment is a journal article. 2. The library subscribes to the journal online (use our ejournal finder to check) Our web site has more information about blackboard linking and Course Reserves.
Reserve requests for the Spring semester are due by December 4th. Please submit all reserve requests by this date to ensure that items are on reserve for your students by the start of the term. You can submit a request by filling out the electronic form under the Library tab at myneu.neu.edu or by turning in a manual request form, which is available at the Circulation Desk in Snell Library. If you would like to request an item for reserves that is not currently in the library’s collection, please see http://www.lib.neu.edu/services/course_reserves/documents/TextbooksCourseReserves.pdf. If you have any questions, please contact Reserves Supervisor Stephanie Knutson at email@example.com or 617-373-4646.
