The Georgetown University in Qatar Library provides course reserve services to ensure access to core required class readings that, due to high demand, would not otherwise be available to all students in a class. Reserve services places both books and electronic reserves (e-reserves) materials at your request.
Electronic Reserves: There is no limit to the number of core required e-reserves readings a faculty member may have on reserve. Limits apply to the amount of an in-copyright item that may be scanned or photocopied. 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. Limit requests to one chapter or 10% from each book. Chapters are listed by their title (one chapter cannot be taken down in order to post a second chapter);
- Single articles from journal issues. Electronic versions will be used whenever possible. If the library does not have the article, we will order a copy.
- We cannot scan items of unknown origin. All photocopies must include the complete bibliographic citation on the photocopy itself. (For books- author, title, publisher, date, edition and ISBN. For book chapters include pagination. For articles- author, title, journal, year, volume, issue and pagination).
Books: There is no limit to the number of core required books a professor may place on course. 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 email access services at Email Access Services
