Faculty Reserve Procedures
A Reserve Request Form is used by faculty to place materials on reserve in the HCC Library.
- Identify the item or items you wish to place on course reserve.
- Complete the form for each title you wish to place on reserve.
- If you have photocopied items you wish placed on course reserve, please clip, staple, or put them together in unlabeled file folders.
- Submit the Reserve Request Form and Copyright Compliance Certificate online or deliver to the Library. Please allow two working days for material to be processed.
Use the following suggestions as you submit your "e-reserve".
- If you have photocopied items you wish to place on course reserve, please clip, staple, or put them together in unlabeled file folders in a manner which reflects how you plan to have your students use them.
- You do NOT need to send them to the library in file folders. If you had placed an item on course reserve during a previous term and you still have the item in the same barcoded folder used before, you may continue to place an item on course reserve in the same folder as before.
- The library will supply any necessary folders and will label them based upon the information you supply on the "Request to Place Items on Course Reserve" form.
- Shoud you wish to check if an item you requested for course reserve has been made available for course reserve use, or if you wish to check an item's reserve number so that you can announce it to your students, go to Classic MnPALS or MnPALS Plus, to begin a Basic Search. You can then search using any combination of your last name, course number,course identifier(i.e. NURS=Nursing) and/or keywords from the title of the item.
- Please note that any personally owned item placed on reserve will have reserve ID number and a barcode affixed to it. In the case of files, library staff may also need to attach additional labels or notes.
- Please do not place on reserve any personally owned item which you would deem irreplaceable or which has some other special value to you. When you place a personally owned item on course reserve, you are exposing it to potential damage or loss. While such occurrences have been infrequent, they do nonetheless happen. Should a borrower lose or damage a personally owned item, the library will bill the borrower accordingly based upon the estimated value you listed on the "Request to Place Items on Course Reserve" form, and you will be reimbursed upon payment by the borrower.
