Students are coming to the NJM Library and requesting reserve items that are not currently on reserve (i.e. indicates in their syllabus but we don’t know about it at the library). This may be because the faculty or instructor has not submitted a request for an item to be put on reserve.
A general reminder to all new faculty and instructors, there are a number of ways to put your course materials on reserve:
- online: http://umanitoba.ca/libraries/elibrary/reserve_form.php
- in-person at the front desk of the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library (220 Brodie Centre)
- email: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and we can direct you to the online or physical reserve request form.
You will need to have ready: course information, book title, and call number.
The University of Manitoba Libraries maintains Reserve Collections in each library. The Reserve Collection maintains course-related materials expected to be in high demand for a specified period, and provides equitable access to those materials. Materials include resources from the Libraries’ holdings and resources provided by the instructor. Reference and other non-circulating materials are not normally placed on Reserve.
