Reserves

The reserves system at Linfield libraries allows students to read required materials for a particular class. Faculty members may place either their own personal copy or a library book on reserve. They may also place photocopies of journal articles or past exams on reserve for 2-hour checkout periods.  Note: E-reserves are no longer hosted on the library site. Instead, faculty will be responsible for loading digitized documents to their BlackBoard courses. Library staff will continue to support faculty with the digitization of documents. Please e-mail your digitization requests to library-circulation@linfield.edu.  Jo Meyertons (jmeyert@linfield.edu) is also available to assist with uploading document to Blackboard.  (Instructions for loading e-content to your BlackBoard courses)

To place physical materials on reserve, fill out a Reserve Request Form   for the McMinnville or Portland campuses and return it with your materials to the Circulation Desk in the appropriate library. (Note to faculty: see Reserve copyright policies).

For scans and physical articles on reserve, materials should conform to the following guidelines:

  • Photocopies must be on letter-size, single-sided white paper.
  • Photocopies should be clean and sharp, without underlining or highlighting.
  • A full bibliographic citation must be included on the first page of the material.
  • Whenever possible, either landscape or portrait mode should be maintained throughout.
  • Documents submitted electronically must be in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF format and should be emailed to library-circulation@linfield.edu. A hard copy of a Reserve Request Form must be submitted to the Circulation Desk before any processing can take place.

Students can find out what is on reserve for a particular class by selecting Course Reserve Readings via the Libraries web page. Search by keyword, professor or course name/number.

Fines for overdue reserve materials are:
2 hour reserves: $1.00 per hour overdue
4 hour reserves: $1.00 per hour overdue
1 day reserves: $2.00 per hour overdue
3 day reserves: $2.00 per hour overdue
