UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Due Dates for Course Reserves for Summer 2010, Fall 2010

To ensure availability on the first day of classes, Course Reserve lists for the Summer term must be turned in by Friday, May 7; for the Fall term, Friday, August 6.

What’s new?

  1. If copying Blackboard course materials from previous semesters, do so before making your eReserve requests to the Reserves staff. If the previous semester course had eReserves, you must remove the link manually. If you do not, your new requests will not show up in your new course. For help with this task, see your Instructional Technology Consultant as Reserves staff does not have the ability to perform this task.
  2. To save paper and processing time, staff are now using a book scanner to produce eReserves for most items for which scanner-ready photocopies are not provided. This change means that they will no longer be able to provide you with printed copies of these readings.
  3. They now offer two hourly reserve loan period options for print reserves. Select and change all loan periods for print reserves previously listed as Closed or Two Hours on your reserve lists to one of these options:
  • Two-hour Building Use (2HB) for library items you want to available during 24/5 hours and all photocopies. Note that any personal materials you place on reserve will be available only within the library.
  • Two-hour Overnight (2HO) for library items you want to be available to check out from the library overnight. These materials may be borrowed two hours before midnight (or closing if earlier) and are due back by 9:30 a.m. the following day (or two hours after opening).

See all the available loan period options at http://library.uncg.edu/depts/cpr/loanandfine.asp.

Planning to set up one or more Course Reserves for Summer or Fall classes? Let the Reserves staff help:

Who is eligible? Anyone teaching a for credit course at UNCG may place materials on print and eReserve.

What type of materials can be placed on reserve? Reserve materials should be limited to required or heavy demand materials. You may place materials belonging to the University Libraries on reserve (excluding reference books, e-books, and items from Special Collections or the University Archives), as well as personally-owned materials and photocopies that meet copyright criteria. DVDs and VHS tapes from the University Teaching and Learning Center and CDs from the Music Library can be placed on reserve in Jackson Library as an alternative to the home library. Any VHS tapes from the UTLC placed on reserve in Jackson must be on a 1, 3, or 7 day loan as there is no VHS viewing equipment available in Jackson.

How do you get started? If you are creating a new Course Reserve or adding materials to an existing one, read the directions at http://library.uncg.edu/depts/cpr/reserveforms.asp and fill out a reserve form. If you are reusing a Course Reserve from a previous term update the course, term, and loan periods and make any other needed changes to the readings and resubmit the old list.

What if you want to use the same Course Reserve list established for Spring 2010—any shortcuts? Yes, simply call the staff at 6-1199 or email reserves@uncg.edu and let them know the specific course and section number for the fall list you wish to transfer and the course and section number for the winter and/or spring class.
