Academic reserves are course related materials given special status for one semester. Print reserve items are shelved on closed stacks behind the circulation desk, and have short loan periods to ensure all students in a given class access to the material.
Faculty are limited to ten books per course for print reserves. Due to space restrictions, and Nalanda and Paramita campus libraries the limit is five books per course.
The default loan period for a reserve item is four hours with permission to remove item from the library. Individual reserve items or a group of reserve items my have a special reserve loan period on request, such as 24 hours overnight or two hours loan restricted to in-library use only. Teaching assistants, adjunct faculty and core faculty may place items on reserve.
Every Naropa University course comes with an eLearning page that contains an integrated Online Sourcebook where course electronic reserve readings should be held. The library can assist instructors in managing their course Online Sourcebooks through training on how to upload readings, and direction on how to make clean scans that are ADA and copyright compliant. Please contact the Access Services Librarian to get more information, or simply write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit the electronic reserves page for further instructions. Elearning tutorials can be found on MyNaropa.
Naropa’s electronic reserves are housed on the eLearning platform, under the Online Sourcebook link in each individual course page. Electronic reserves are no longer housed on the Dokutek platform.
Electronic Reserves materials are available 24 hours a day to students and instructors who can access their course pages with their MyNaropa login and password. Students and instructors access their Online Sourcebooks by logging into MyNaropa, then clicking on the eLearning tab, then choosing the individual course that they want to access or manage.
