Gleeson Library is only able to process Electronic Reserves at this time. Print Reserves materials can be submitted for scanning and online access (some restrictions may apply), but will not be made available at the Circulation/Reserves Desk. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 422-6908 with any questions.
Faculty can place materials on Course Reserve for students enrolled in their course. Materials may be the personal property of faculty or the property of Gleeson Library. The library can also add website links onto a faculty’s Course Reserve page. It typically takes 2-5 business days to process Course Reserve requests and they are done on a first come, first served basis. *Please allow more time for personal property to be processed and scanned — this material will need to be quarantined before being handled by library staff.
A list of Course Reserve materials can be viewed through the faculty’s Course Reserve page that is created in the library’s online catalog.
Once your requests have been processed, you can link to your Course Reserves page in Canvas.
While the library strives to place all requested materials on Course Reserve, situations may arise where not all requests can be accommodated. The library will work with faculty whenever such instances occur. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
Faculty may provide a personal copy of a book or other print material to be scanned by the library after submitting a Course Reserves Request Form.
A personal copy of a book or other print material should be delivered to the book drop or shipped to the library early enough to allow time for processing and scanning. Extra time will be needed to quarantine personal copies before being handled by library staff.
Faculty may deliver materials to the Gleeson Library book drop to be processed and scanned for Course Reserve. Please put materials in an envelope and include a note.
