How to Place Materials on Reserve
Please bring in materials to go on Reserve well in advance of student's need for them. Materials are processed in the order they are submitted to the desk. Our goal is to process materials in 24-72 hours but at the quarter starting peak, the material may take longer to be made available.
There are severals ways to submitt your materials to Reserve:
1. Print the To Go On Reserve Form out and bring the completed form along with your materials to the Circulation desk for Reserve processing
2. Submit the materials by electronic mail to Wallace Library Reserve Desk (you may "attach" course files to your e-mail or embed text files in the body of the message) your name, e-mail address, homepage URL (if you have one), course name & number, electronic course resources (links(URL's) &/or files), and date to delete the files/links.
3. Fax materials to E-Reserve. Fax the materials along with a cover page outlining any special instruction you have for us to 585-475-6490.
Removing Material from Reserve:
Items may be removed from Reserve at any time by stopping at the desk and completing the Reserve Deletions Form, e-mailing requests (email@example.com) or calling in requests (585-475-2560) to have the materials interoffice mailed to you. Each year, an inventory listing will be sent to individuals with items on reserve as a reminder for our year end clean-up.
