Libraries introduce new course reserve service

Aug. 30, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Beginning this fall, University Libraries at Western Michigan University is offering a new course reserve service for students and faculty.

Using the new online system, faculty members may create their own course reserves pages and request that book, chapter, article and other print and electronic items be placed on reserve at Waldo Library, the Education Library and online. Faculty may assign course reserves passwords, as they have done previously, to ensure that only those students registered for a course will be allowed permission to use that course's reserve materials.

Students will be able to add courses that include reserve items to a personal hot list for simpler access to all their reserve materials.

All faculty and students will need to create accounts in the new system to use it. Bronco NetIDs may be used as a username, but it is strongly recommend--for personal security--that users select a different password from their normal Bronco NetID password.

Library staff encourages faculty and students to try the new system as soon as possible and establish an account. There are help links on the new course reserve Web pages, which will be ready for use beginning the first week of fall semester. Contact lib-rsc@wmich.edu or (269) 387-5175 with additional questions.
