Every semester, submit a Course Reserves Request form for each course you wish to have items on reserve. This includes both print reserves and electronic reserves ("eReserves").
Want to put something on reserve that's not currently in our collection? Submit a Resource Request form. Use this form to request both print and electronic resources. Please specify on the form that the resource(s) are intended for reserves. Email Laura Ponikvar, CIA Gund Library Director, if you have any questions about library acquisitions.
Please submit all forms ASAP. This will help expedite the processing of materials for your course and ensure they are available for students by the start of the semester.
The library processes all requests in the order they are received and makes every effort to have course materials available by the first week of the semester. Library staff will pull, process, and shelve print resources and post links to electronic resources on myCIA (see Step 3 for more information). Personal print copies must be received before putting on reserve.
To find print reserves: See CIA reserves lists by course on the Case Catalog. Print reserves are not listed on the eReserves guide. Print reserves are kept behind the library circulation desk during the semester. Students can come to the circulation desk and ask library staff for the print title(s) to check out.
To find electronic reserves: See our eReserves guide on myCIA. eReserves are not listed on the reserves lists on the Case Catalog. Students need to log into myCIA to view the guide. Links within the guide can be accessed on and off campus. Off-campus access requires logging into the proxy server.
IN LIBRARY : 3-hour borrowing for use in library only. We use this loan period if one is not specified an item on the form or if an item is being used for multiple concurrent courses and/or sections. Fines: $1/hour overdue.
OVERNIGHT : If borrowed before 4pm: The item can only be borrowed for 3-hour in library use only. If borrowed after 4pm: The item can be borrowed overnight and returned the next day the library is open. Items must be returned by 10am if returning Monday-Friday or 2pm if returning Saturday or Sunday. Fines: $1.00/hour overdue.
ONE WEEK: Can be taken out of library. Items must be returned 7 days after checkout. Fines: $10.00/day overdue.
CIA Library makes every effort to comply with current copyright law regarding the use of photocopied materials.
Photocopies of items can be placed on reserve, with conditions. A copy can be placed on reserve once and will be made available via eReserves unless otherwise requested in print. If a copy of this same material is requested for another semester, faculty must provide written permission from the copyright holder. The library may be able to provide assistance in obtaining copyright permission or investigating other options if possible.
To comply with Fair Use guidelines:
Course reserves does not replace course packs.
As with all library circulation records, records for course reserves borrowing are confidential. Library staff is not permitted to provide the names of anyone who has used course reserves materials.
