Collection Development Statement
Course Reserves

At the request of instructors, the Rutgers University Libraries maintain reserve collections and online access to class-related library materials to support the work of a particular class for a semester. Books are made available electronically or in print to circulate for shortened loan periods; scanned materials are delivered electronically as PDF documents; audio files are streamed for delivery over the Rutgers network as resources permit; and links are provided to electronic items available online in IRIS.

Items requested by instructors for reserves that are not available in the RUL collections will be ordered through the firm order process on a priority 1 basis using the central Reserves fund. All available RUL copies will be placed on reserve before new copies are ordered.
