Teaching a Summer Course? Submit Reserve Requests by May 4

May 3, 2018

In response to feedback from faculty and students, Rutgers University Libraries will migrate to a new, state-of-the-art library system on June 5. This new system will improve the management of library resources and provide streamlined search and access on our website.

As you can imagine, this is a huge undertaking and we anticipate that our regular course reserve activities may be affected for a period of time after May 4. We will endeavor to keep this disruption to a minimum and will send notice when regular activities resume. During this period, the Libraries will continue to purchase course reserves through a special purchasing process; however, instructors might experience longer turnaround time or encounter other unforeseen circumstances.

In order to minimize disruption to summer courses, we encourage everyone teaching summer courses to submit their reserve requests before May 4. We will do our best to address any concerns and thank all instructors in advance for their cooperation and understanding.

Please submit requests using the following forms:

Books and articles (both electronic and print):

https://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/forms/reserves

Media:

https://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/forms/media_reserves

Materials in the Libraries will be placed on reserve by library staff, and we will make our best effort to purchase books and media currently unavailable in the collections.

The forms have contact information for staff who can answer questions about course reserves. For questions and comments about the system migration, please email reference@rutgers.libanswers.com.
