How to place materials on reserve for your course
- We need as much lead time as possible. For example, we may need to recall or purchase books for your course or we may need to send the materials for scanning.
- You may send us information or files via email.
- If you come in person, please see Richmond Kinney in the Astronomy Library. If Richmond's not around, please see Kerry Kresse or David Dodd in the Physics Library.
- Please do not leave reserve materials with a student assistant at the front desk unless they are clearly labelled.
- Electronic copies of reserves are generally available within 24 hours of receipt. If you are in a hurry to have items placed on reserve, please let us know! We can expedite processing.
