The Summer 2019 deadline for faculty submitting items for Reserves is Friday, January 10, 2020. Submit your request using the Request a Reserve Form.

What is a Reserve?

Faculty can request restricted loan periods for supplemental course resources to ensure fair access for all students. It may also be possible to create an eReserve, which allows for 24/7 online access via eConestoga and enhance AODA compliance.

Textbooks & Learning Packages

  • A textbook or learning package may be placed on Reserve, but the use of Reserves should not be a substitute for the purchase of required resources. Any learning package placed on reserve must be copyright compliant.

Loan Periods include:

  • Two hours (In-Library use only)
  • One day

Note: The following materials are not accepted:

  • Instructor’s manuals, workbooks, business cases
  • More than 3 copies of any resource

What can be posted to your eConestoga course as an eReserve?

  • Links to online books, articles, streamed video, etc, from the Library's collections
  • A scan from a published work that is within Fair Dealing.
  • Scans of original files (e.g., test solutions)
