Adjunct Academy: Course Reserves

Overview of Neumann Library's services for adjunct faculty members

Make additional course readings available to students

The purpose of the reserve collection in the Neumann Library is to make REQUIRED ADDITIONAL READING available to a class.

How to put an item on course reserve

Place UHCL library-owned or personal copies of class readings on reserve at the Circulation Desk. Reserve materials may have a 2-hour, 1-, 3-, or 7-day loan period.


Additionally, we can make your course reserves (journal articles, single book chapters, or class notes) available online for your students through our e-reserves system.

If the material is available through our full-text databases, we will create a persistent link to the article. If not, we can also take your digital material (or scan it for you). These passworded documents will be available to your students anywhere they have access to the Internet. Fair use copyright guidelines apply.
