Pendergrass Course Reserves

Reserve Policy

The Pendergrass Agriculture-Veterinary Medicine Library provides course reserve services so that classes of students can share access to required and supplementary materials. Please place your requests as early as possible to allow sufficient time for processing. Reserve lists will be accepted at any time, but those received in advance will assure the best service for students and the most convenience for faculty.

Online Items: Online items are no longer available for the course reserve collection.  See our General Announcement for more information or contact David Ownby with questions about former online reserve materials.  Please contact Digital Media Services for more information about creating digital materials for inclusion in courses’ Blackboard Learn web sites.

Submit your requests using the request form above. Please provide all information requested above for each title to be included in the course reserve collection.

Please note course packs are not eligible for reserve.

Books:
Check the Catalog to identify books that are already in the Libraries’ collections, either at Pendergrass or another UT Libraries’ branch.

If the library does not own the book you want to reserve, we will attempt to purchase it for the collection. Please provide the titles of these books as soon as you identify them and submit this list separately. It is never too early to request books that must be purchased.

If the library cannot purchase a copy of an item you need, you may provide a personal copy. The library assumes no responsibility for these materials other than routine care and service. You may donate personal copies to the library for inclusion in our collection. Gifts to UT Libraries are eligible for applicable tax deductions.

Journal articles:
If you have a copy of a journal article, you may submit it with your list. If you need help providing digital access to articles owned by the library, please contact us for assistance.

Audiovisual materials:
The library provides reserve for videos and audio materials. CD-ROMs may also be designated for reserve. Certain CD-ROMs can be checked out for students’ individual use. Alternatively, databases can be mounted on a library computer for shared access.

Course Reserve Fines
Faculty and students need note that course reserve items accrue fines based on the individual item’s loan period. In example, a 24-hour loan period item will accrue a fine for each hour that it is late and a 3-day loan period item will accrue a fine for each day that it is late.  Separate fines will be applied for each reserve item checked out by a patron. These fines will accrue until the item is returned and will remain on a patron’s account until it is paid.  Unlike other library fines, course reserve fines are not eligible for an automatic waiver when returned.  This policy is strictly enforced to ensure equitable access to the collection by all students in a course.
