Course Reserves Information for Faculty

Why Place Items on Course Reserves?

When faculty place electronic and print items on Course Reserves, faculty reduce financial stress on students.  Electronic and print reserves are listed in a single Course Reserves module, giving students an easy access point for what is available to them.

Electronic Reserves

Faculty can request currently licensed eBooks and other electronic materials for placement on course reserves.  After identifying a Kennedy-licensed ebook or other electronic item in OneSearch, use Submit Course Reserves form below and paste a OneSearch Permalink to the item in the “Special Instructions” box.

Faculty can request purchase of ebooks if the items are not found in OneSearch.  To do so, use the Request to Purchase Materials for Course Reserves form below.  Note: all requests for electronic materials will be considered, but filling such requests is contingent on licensing and cost considerations.

Print Reserves

Print Reserves have resumed for Fall 2023 and will be available for checkout in Crandall (bldg. 60). 

Instructor copies and available Kennedy-owned materials can be placed on print reserves by faculty request.

Interlibrary Loan books are not eligible for print reserves, and the library does not purchase books for print reserves.

To place instructor copies or available Kennedy-owned items on print reserves use the form found on Submit Course Reserves below.

To maximize student evening use and student day use in temporary study locations, the “3 hour/overnight loan term” is recommended.
