Course Reserves, Library Instruction and more for Fall 2015!

healey_extAugust approaches!  Are you  preparing for the Fall 2015 semester?  Staff at Healey Library can assist you  with reserves, help you establish correct linking to internet resources, and schedule Library Instruction sessions for your classes. Reserves
Please send us your reserve lists as soon as you are able, and indicate the course number for each list. The sooner we have your request, the sooner we can work on making your material available.

Books not already in our collection will be purchased; full titles, authors, edition and ISBNs will help. E-books will be purchased first when available in order to provide greater accessibility to your students. You can also send us your print or electronic articles to be posted on our e-reserve system. Include a link or attach a copy of the item(s) to your email. If you do not have a copy, provide a complete citation.

Personal copies of DVDs and books can be dropped off at the reserves office on the 4th floor of Healey Library (H-4-30A). If you’d like to drop off materials after hours (M-F 8AM-4PM), you may also complete a form at the circulation desk on the 2nd floor.

Previously used e-reserves lists can be reactivated; contact us and provide a new password!  Email library.reserves@umb.edu or call 617.287.5905.

Linking to Resources
Do you need assistance identifying stable links to journal articles, e-books, or streaming media to share with your students or use in Blackboard? We have a tutorial for that!

Instructions for creating persistent links (sometimes called permanent links) for e-resources can be found here.

If you need additional assistance, you may email library.reserves@umb.edu.

Library Instruction Requests
If you’d like to include a custom, course-integrated library instruction session in your class this semester, please schedule it in advance! There is a high demand for these classes, especially at the beginning of each semester. New this fall are online tutorials for both undergraduate and graduate classes that can be used as standalone instruction or integrated into our face-to-face library instruction program through flipped classrooms. E-mail us for more information!

For more information, please visit our faculty info page.
To schedule, please email library.reference@umb.edu.

We look forward to working with you in the coming year.
