Course Reserve Materials Deadlines for Fall 2013 Semester

UWM faculty and teaching staff, please mark your calendars:

E-Reserve Materials Priority Deadline: Monday, August 12, 2013
Traditional Reserve Materials Priority Deadline: Friday, August 23, 2013

IMPORTANT:  Please contact Reserve Services directly to place any special book orders prior to this deadline.

Please submit your Fall 2013 E-Reserve requests by Monday, August 12, 2013 and your Traditional Reserve materials requests by Friday, August 23, 2013. Requests received after these deadlines will be placed in a queue and addressed on a first-come, first-served basis and therefore your materials may not be processed before the start of the Fall semester.

E-Reserve requests placed between August 12th and September 13th may require a 2-3 week processing lead time. However, Traditional and E-Reserve requests may be made any time throughout the semester – and lead times are significantly shorter during non-peak processing times.

We are more than willing to consult with faculty in person – contact us to make an appointment and we’ll set up a meeting time. Reminder: Providing Reserve Services staff a course syllabus or reading list with complete citations allows us to process your materials in the order that your students need it.

NOTE: After investigating options available to us, we will be transitioning our E-Reserve service to one in which course readings are posted directly in D2L. We will no longer be hosting E-Reserve materials on library-created web pages and linking them in our Course Reserve Catalog after the Spring 2014 semester on May 23, 2014. For more detailed information, please see the Library Director’s letter and a detailed FAQ about this process on our Electronic Reserve and D2L Library Guide.
