      Putting Print and Electronic Material on Reserve

      Overview/Guidelines

      The reserve system supports instruction by providing access to materials needed by students for current courses. Please follow these guidelines:

      • Place only required or recommended materials for current courses on reserve.
      • Materials owned by the Libraries should not be kept on reserve when they are not needed, as this unnecessarily restricts circulation.

      Submitting Requests/Materials for Reserve

      When placing materials on reserve, please provide complete information:

      • Use the Online Reserve Request Form.
      • Completely fill out the form.
      • Give full citations for items that must be retrieved from the shelves.  

      Submit your list of reserve items before the term starts.

      In order to ensure that we have LRC-owned items on reserve for the beginning of the term, please request them 4 weeks before they are needed in case they are in use by another patron.  Please submit copies of personal materials 2 weeks before the term starts to allow for the heavier volume of incoming requests.  Materials submitted after this deadline will be processed as quickly as possible.

      Information for Catalog

      Reserve materials may be searched on the Course Reserves page of the Legal Research Center website by the course number, course name, or instructor's name.

      Personal copies

      Please put your name in each item. A barcode and small markings will be placed on the outside of the books and other materials. Anti-theft tape will be placed inside the book. The Legal Research Center will put forth its best effort to prevent theft and mutilation of personal copies, but we are not responsible for loss or damage of personal copies.

      Picking up "personal copy" items.

      At the end of the term instructors will be notified via email to pick up personal copies (personal items may be picked up at any time during the term).  Items not picked up in 2 weeks will be placed in your mailbox.

      Electronic Reserve

      Please observe the following guidelines when submitting materials to be placed on electronic reserve:

      • Please submit your materials 2 weeks before they are needed. The library system allows a maximum of 30 items to be submitted for electronic reserve for any single course. Follow these steps:
        1. Complete the Online Reserve Form
        2. All paper copies of documents to be placed on reserve may be submitted either in person at the Circulation Desk or via e-mail attachments. If an item is available on the web, please provide the URL in the “Citation” portion of the Online Reserve Form.
      • Materials submitted may be made in any of the following formats:
        • PDF. Documents may be submitted as e-mail attachments sent to Urooj Nizami at nu43@drexel.edu.
        • Paper. Copies must be clean 8 1/2 X 11 inches, of high quality, single sided, and contain no holes or staples.
        • ASCII or .txt files. Submit items in these formats via e-mail attachments.
        • Web based materials. Include the URL with your reserve requests.
      • Materials must be renewed: If you plan to use your course reserves for the next term, please renew them.  

      To order a title the Legal Research Center does not own:

      Please plan ahead and order titles two months in advance, as orders may take 4-6 weeks for delivery, and the item must be cataloged after arrival. Even a "rush" order may take anywhere from a week to 4-6 weeks, depending on availability.  In order to speed up the process, please include as complete a bibliographic reference as possible.
