Terrell Library currently offers a seminar reserve service to faculty in the Humanities and Social Sciences Division (College of Sciences and Arts) and the Colleges of Business and Economics. We provide seminar reserve service only for graduate and/or seminar courses which require concurrent usage of materials. To insure that these materials will be readily available for immediate access by users, they must be used within the Current Journal Room. They CANNOT be checked out. Copy machines are available in the Current Journal/Reserve Room. Due to heavy usage, reference and two-hour materials may not be placed on Seminar Reserve.
Available shelving space is allocated according to a first-come, first served principal. A maximum of 100 items per course (books, volumes, folders, etc.) may be placed on seminar reserve to insure equitable access by students in other courses. After the initial two weeks of each semester, requests for additional items may be accepted if shelving space is still available.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT SEMINAR RESERVE
Materials may be placed on seminar reserve by requesting seminar reserve forms from the Reserve Desk (ground floor, Holland East), the Circulation Desk, or download the form from this site. Fill out each form completely, and return the completed forms and materials to the Reserve Desk. All photocopies must be provided by the instructor and are restricted due to the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976 and library policy. Please allow up to two weeks for materials to be processed. Some materials may need to be recalled from individuals and will take extra time to prepare. At the end of each semester, all materials will be taken off seminar reserve and returned to the regular shelves unless otherwise requested by the instructor.
OTHER RESERVE MATERIALS
Other required course materials, for classes which do not meet the criteria above, may continue to be located at the Reserve Desk where students may check out two items at a time for periods ranging from two hours to seven days, depending on the instructor's preferences.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION
A number of graduate and seminar classes have taken advantage of the seminar reserve service in the past. For additional information, please contact Holland Library staff in Media Materials & Reserve, 335-2716.
