Requests for Fall Semester Reserves due by August 17th

SoE Faculty, TAs, and Instructional Staff:

Please note that reserves requests for the Fall Semester are due at MERIT Library by August 17th, 2016 in order to be available at the start of the semester.

EReserves appear online as part of a web resource called “Library Course Pages”.  Within the MyUW portal, students will find EReserves, along with library resources posted by library instruction staff.  “Library course pages” are intended to be collaborative between faculty and library staff, and serve as a web vehicle to post both EReserves and library instruction resources online.

Contact Jim Jonas with questions about posting library instruction resources for students.

Keep the following in mind when submitting Reserves requests:

— Provide complete citations for items being placed on electronic reserves.  We need the author & title of the book/journal, copyright date and copyright holder.  For books, you can simply scan or photocopy the title page and (usually) the back of the title page, which gives the copyright information.  If you need assistance in identifying the citation for these materials, please ask MERIT Library reference staff for assistance.

— If you would like items that are currently on reserves (from summer) kept on reserves for the fall semester, please let me know as soon as possible.  If I do not hear from you, they will be removed at the end of the summer semester.

You may print the Reserve List request form, fill it out and return to Donna Meicher at 368 Teacher Education Building.  Or, you may submit your request electronically using our online request form.

For more information, see our guidelines for placing items on reserves at MERIT Library.  You may also want to review the campus libraries reserve policy.

If you have questions or concerns about the MERIT Library reserves process, you may contact Donna Meicher, Vince Jenkins, or Anna Lewis.

COURSE-RELATED CUSTOM INSTRUCTION SESSIONS focused on technology skills, technology integration, and information literacy are available from MERIT Library. Please see our Course Related Instruction webpage for more information.

Thank you!

Donna Meicher

Library Closed Aug 12-19

Please pardon our dust as MERIT Library has a little work done!  We are very excited to share that MERIT Library will be getting new carpeting, and the circulation desk that has been in place since the dawn of time will be replaced as well!  To complete the project, Room 350 and 350a will undergo a minor abatement project prior to the carpet change.

The Library will be open during the majority of the construction, but will be closed August 12-19. All other areas of MERIT will be open.

See the digital signage in Teacher Education, Education, and Lathrop for construction updates!
