INSTRUCTIONS FOR FACULTY:
Course Reserve services allow Faculty Members to...
- Place a book, DVD, or digital resource from their personal collection to be discoverable through Primo's Course Reserves search function.
- Course Reserves allows your students to search Primo and find books and resources set aside for your class. Through Primo, your students will be able to request items for borrow in the library at 2 hour intervals.
- The item will be processed, shelved in our course reserve section behind the front desk.
- The item will be discoverable on Primo by your course number, course name, instructor name, or title.
- If sending a physical item from their personal collection, send it with the Course Reserve Form to the Law Library Evening Supervisor.
- If you would like to connect an eBook title to Course Reserves, please contact our Acquisition Librarian to inquire about purchasing an eBook title for your class. If the purchase is successful, the eBook can easily be linked to your class syllabus and it does not have to be a course reserve resource.
- But if you have a pdf of a reading that you do want to add to Course Reserves, then, send the file along with the Course Reserve form.
- Download, print, and fill out the Course Reserve Form.
- Please note that the default loan period for items on course reserve is two hours, for in-library use only. This is to ensure the resource would be available for other students in the class.
- Physical course reserve resources can be requested through Primo or at the Law Library's front desk.
- Depending on their licensing, some eBooks may limit 1 viewer at a time and may limit page downloading and printing capabilities. Copyright rules may also apply for reproducing course reserve materials.
- If there are any special requests, such as extending the resource's loan period, or other needs, please write the details on the course reserve form.
For any questions, please contact the Evening Supervisor at ellenrae[at]hawaii[dot]edu or at ext. 62867.
