Textbook Reserves Update

by Meghan Kowalski on 2020-09-09T09:00:00-04:00 | Comments

Through the fall semester, the library's textbook reserves program will be available digitally only. Normally, textbooks on reserves may be checked out for two hours at a time. Since all physical material must be quarantined for 72 hours after use, we have moved to a digitization program for this semester. 

The library will digitize content from our textbooks reserves collection following best practices and copyright law. We will not be able to digitize entire books. You will be notified if digitization of your requested item is not available or we have hit the copyright limit for that item.

If you wish to have material digitized there are two ways of submitting your request:

Through UDC Search

Note: You MUST be signed in to use this feature. Sign in using your UDC email credentials. Students and faculty are EXTERNAL users.

  • Find the item using UDC Search (this is easier when you search in the "Course Reserves" section)
  • Click on the title of the item you want to open that item's information page
  • Under the "Get It" Menu select "Chapter/Article Request"
  • To ensure you are human, please check the "PLEASE CHECK THIS BOX" at the top of the form
  • Fill out the rest of the form (please remember to include the pages or chapters you need to be digitized)
  • Click "Send Digitization Request"

By Email

Email with the following information:

  • Your full name 
  • Your email
  • Link to the book's record in the catalog (if possible)
  • Title of the Book
  • Author
  • Call Number (if possible)
  • Pages or chapter to be digitized

All digitized material will be delivered to your My Library Account. You will be notified by the email address in that account when it is available. Please allow for a longer than normal response time due to shortened staffing during our reduced hours.
