Course Reserve Materials Deadlines for Spring 2013 Semester

UWM faculty and teaching staff, please mark your calendars:

E-Reserve Materials Priority Deadline: Monday, January 7, 2013
Traditional Reserve Materials Priority Deadline: Friday, January 11, 2013 

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

Please submit your Spring 2013 E-Reserve requests by Monday, January 7, 2013 and your Traditional Reserve materials requests by Friday, January 11, 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 Spring semester.

E-Reserve requests placed from January 8 through February 4 may require at least a 2-week processing lead time. However, Traditional and E-Reserve requests may be placed 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.
