Place Items on Reserve

  • Electronic Reserves: There is no limit to the number of core required e-reserves readings a faculty member may have on reserve. An e-reserve is a single title of a book chapter, a journal article, or professors’ notes, syllabi, or handouts. Entire books cannot be scanned and placed on e-reserve. E-reserve chapters are limited to a quarter of the book and chapters are listed by their title. If the library does not have the article, we will order a copy.
  • Books: There is no limit to the number of core required books a professor may place on course reserves. Lauinger, Blommer Science Library, and Bioethics Research Library books can be placed on reserve. Lauinger, Blommer, and Bioethics books can also be placed on reserve at the Downtown Georgetown library. If the library does not have the book, a copy will be ordered. Personal copies of books can also be placed on reserve.
  • Blackboard: A link from the professors’ course reserves on the library’s home page to the professors’ Blackboard courses will be created under the Blackboard’s Course Tools functionality. This link is now active, but older classes may need to have this functionality enabled. If you need assistance in activating your course reserves in Blackboard, please contact Reserves at 202 687-7607 and ask to speak to a supervisor.
