Reserve materials are required or supplemental course readings that Faculty members want to make available to all of their students. Items from both Decker Library and a faculty member's own personal collection may be placed on reserve.
Materials on reserve can be requested for use at the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library. Reserve items can be checked out for a two-hour period and are for in-library use only.
Faculty members can use this Reserve Request Form (pdf file) to submit requests; this form is also available at the Circulation Desk. Proposed reserve books must be delivered by the faculty to the Circulation Desk along with a completed Reserve Request. The full Faculty Reserves Policy can be viewed on the Faculty User Guidelines page on this site.
Questions regarding Reserves can be directed to the Circulation Supervisor, firstname.lastname@example.org, (410) 225-2272.
SCREENING DATE HOLDS
Screening Date Holds:
Screening dates should be scheduled when materials are needed for one or two classroom sessions but students are not expected to view the film outside of class. After the screening date has passed, the material will be returned to normal circulation.
Materials will be pulled from circulation two weeks prior to the provided screening date. If there are any availability issues, the faculty member will be notified in a timely manner.
The faculty member must be present to check out materials for screening dates unless a signed TA checkout form has been provided.
