We are excited to offer links to E-reserves in D2L to make access easier for students. Some faculty prefer to use physical reserves available at the library’s Circulation Desk. Faculty should let students know whether the reserve materials for courses are available through D2L or at the library's Circulation Desk.
All electronic items are now accessed through D2L. Select the Information for Faculty tab above if you need to add materials to E-reserves.
To check an item out from Reserves, present the desk attendant with your USD ID and the call number of the material. Materials placed on Reserve can be identified by using the library’s online catalog or through use of the Reserve binder (red three ring notebook) located at the Circulation Desk. Each reserve item is identified by a call number which is needed for the Circulation staff to retrieve it.
When using reserve items in the library, please keep in mind that:
- Reserve items need to be used by a large number of people in a short period of time. To make the limited number of items available to as many people as possible, all reserve items have restricted loan periods and overdue fines of $0.25 per hour.
- Reserve items may not be put on hold, recalled, or renewed.
- The borrower is responsible for returning reserve materials to the Circulation desk within the time frame of the loan.
Request Forms for faculty are available at the following link - Course Reserve Request Form.
If you have any questions, concerns, or problems, please contact Course Reserves by phone: 605.677.5349 or by e-mail: email@example.com
