Course reserve materials are books, articles, videos, etc., which are set aside by instructors to support class instruction.
Reserve materials are kept behind the service desk and may be requested through a service desk worker. Reserve items are generally listed as 3-hour library use only. This means that the material may not be taken out of the library. However, some items have longer borrowing periods.
The borrowing period is set in place by the course instructor and will not be changed by library personnel unless permission is personally granted by the course instructor.Students are able to search the Library Catalog for Course Reserves with either the Course # or the Instructor's Name.
If you would like to add materials to our course reserves, please complete the Course Reserves Request form.
Each academic area at Lander University is served by a professional librarian as part of the liaison program. This program provides a personal connection to the library for faculty and students in each discipline. In order to maintain and further develop library collections, each professional librarian is assigned liaison areas that coincide with academic departments or special programs. These subject liaison librarians review program areas regularly to insure collection relevancy and currency and are responsible for purchasing appropriate print and online research resources for their assigned departments in consultation with faculty and students through feedback and faculty informational meetings. Librarians provide collection development, reference assistance, and instruction for their assigned academic areas and they monitor the specific needs of each department through this library liaison program.
If you have a suggestion for a book, media or other information resources, please use the Suggest a Resource form to communicate with the librarians.
