Please remember that Course Reserve files cannot be accessed with Internet Explorer version 9 or Firefox version 14. You will load an error message or a blank page. This problem was detected last semester and the bug is mentioned on the Copyright Notice that displays whenever a reading on Course Reserve is accessed.
Course Reserve materials can be added at any point in the semester. There is no deadline for Spring 2013 Course Reserve requests.
Whenever possible Course Reserve staff will link to the vendor provided copies of materials. Many journal articles can be accessed in this manner, but not all.
It is the responsibility of instructors to provide editable pdfs or photocopies of all new readings. Please include a photocopy of the title page and copyright notice of the source material. If the libraries can link to an item then the instructor does not need to supply a copy
Textbooks are expensive. If an instructor has a spare copy of the textbook they are using for a course it might be helpful to their students to have the spare copy on Course Reserve. All instructor owned materials are returned at the end of the semester.
