Course Reserves is one of the core library services to support the University’s teaching and learning by ensuring that heavily used resources are available to students. One of available items in reference textbook in module specification of the term will be put in the Course Reserves book shelf.
“Curriculum” is a new feature in the Library Catalogue System. This feature provides students with a convenient way of searching for their desired reference books. “Curriculum” covers the reference books in Semester 1 of Academic Year 2020/21, and one copy of these reference books can be found in Course Reserves.
How to Submit Course Reserves Items
Add the item titles in Reference Textbook in module specification in e-bridge, and one of the available items will be put in the Course Reserves book shelf.
Email the Library Collection Circulation Type Changing Request Form to Lib-USD@xjtlu.edu.cn.
Directly submit the Library Collection Circulation Type Changing Request Form to 3rd floor Circulation Desk.
Book reserves are processed upon academic staffs' submission. Library staff processes book on a first-come, first-served basis. For best results, we suggest that you submit Reserve lists one month before the beginning of each semester.
Processing times are approximate and will vary depending on the time of the semester, the amount and availability of materials, and other factors. Library-owned materials needed for Reserves are often out on loan and must be recalled before they can be processed. This can cause significant delays. Although we are committed to making Course Reserve books available when needed, we cannot guarantee processing time.
Request the item with its call number at the library Circulation Desk.
Course Reserves items must be returned before the Circulation Desk closing hours on the borrowed day.
Course Reserves items must be returned to the Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor. Please DO NOT return to self-returning machines.
Due to the great demand for items on Course Reserves, fines are higher than general collection in order to deter borrowers from keeping materials past the due date and time.
