Course Resource Development

Document

e-Reserves

During COVID-19 this Fall the library will not be placing items on physical reserve and instead placing items on e-reserve. To request e-Reserves, visit the e-Reserves Guide.

Request Course Reserves

Locating Reserve Items

You can search for Course Reserves on the Library Catalog’s Advanced Search. Search by keyword, author, title, instructor name or course number.

Media Digitization Requests

Upon request, the E. H. Little Library will stream media that is considered integral to the classroom experience of a course.

Please complete and submit a Streaming Request Form for video and audio streaming requests. Faculty may use one form for multiple title streaming requests.

To provide sufficient time to process a streaming request, we ask that faculty submit requests seven days before it is needed for class use. Please note, if a DVD must be purchased to fulfill the streaming request, this will prolong the processing time. Submissions will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Faculty will receive an email notification when their requested title is available. To check on the status of a request, please contact acquisitions@davidson.edu.

Reserves and Streaming Guidelines and Policies
