9/14/2020: Kindles now available for select course reserves ebooks!
As a recipient of a grant provided by the State Library of Ohio to offset COVID-19 expenses, CIA Gund Library was able to use a portion of these funds to purchase five Kindle Fire e-readers to facilitate a pilot program with select course reserve titles provided in ebook format. We are very excited about the addition of e-readers to support our students in a different way.
These devices are available for use in the library for three hours. Unlike books, we are able to sanitize these devices after use, which makes it possible to offer course reserves.
Currently the Kindles have the following titles on each device
If you would like to add your textbooks, please reach out to the Library Director, Laura Ponikvar, at email@example.com. Many are not available to purchase, but we are looking into textbook rentals for these devices. Plan ahead for your Spring 2021 classes!
8/13/2020: The eReserves guide is here!
In lieu of our print course reserves service, which has been suspended for the Fall 2020 semester, the library is now offering digital course reserves from a variety of content providers which can all be found at our new eReserves guide.
See the "eReserves on myCIA" tab above or go to https://my.cia.edu/ICS/Student/Library/eReserves.jnz and log in to access the guide now.
If you have any questions about accessing the guide, helping students use the guide, or adding your course materials to this guide, please email Jackie Lagunzad, the library's course reserves contact, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7/23/2020: CIA Library will not offer physical course reserves services for the Fall 2020 semester.
Due to COVID-19 developments and related concerns surrounding equitable access to materials, the CIA Library will not offer physical course reserves services for the Fall 2020 semester. This decision was based on the results released by the REALM study on 7/20/2020. The library has also implemented a 4 day quarantine period for all returned or recently accessed physical materials. Please reach out to the library staff with any concerns or questions.
We encourage you to fully leverage our already established services, including scanning, electronic resources, electronic reserves, our instructional program, and research help. The library staff is prepared to help you to continue to provide all of the necessary resources to your students. Please know that as we continue our Fall 2020 preparations, we will be ensuring our students are aware of this development and their options for learning support.
Thank you so much for your understanding and collaboration as we continue to provide excellent service and offer as much accessibility as we can to support teaching and learning during this extraordinary time in higher education – while helping to ensure our community’s health and safety.
The CIA Library provides course reserve services for CIA degree-program classes at the request of individual CIA faculty. Please speak with Jackie Lagunzad, the library's course reserves contact, about any special requests.
Complete a library reserves request form for each course each semester you wish to have items on reserve. Please use our online reserves request form. Paper forms are available in the library and can be turned into the circulation desk when complete. They can also be emailed to Jackie Lagunzad.
Indicate your choice of loan period for each item on the list. Please refer the "Loan period options" box below for the loan periods offered. If a loan period is not noted, the IN-LIBRARY loan period will be used.
Submit the completed form as soon as possible in order for items to be available the first week of class. Lists are processed in the order they are received. Library staff will pull any library items and put them on the reserve shelf. Please bring in personal copies before they are put on reserve.
Options for loan periods are as follows:
If a loan period is not indicated on the form, the IN-LIBRARY loan period will be used.
Is there a course material not already in the CIA library collection that students are having difficulty accessing? Consider filling out our online form at https://cia.libwizard.com/f/requests to request a book or other resource be added to the CIA library's collection.
The CIA Library makes every effort to comply with current copyright law regarding the use of photocopied material.
As with all library circulation records, reserve records for individual patrons are confidential. We are not permitted to provide the names of anyone who has used reserve materials.
