Course Reserves - Update and Advisory for Fall 2020
Given the uncertainties surrounding Covid-19, it is possible that access to our course reserves might be limited during upcoming semesters. If the virus begins to spread on campus, there is a chance that we may need to close Hamilton Library again for some or all of a semester.
Additionally, any returned materials, including course reserves, will have a 72 hour quarantine before others can use it, making these materials less accessible than usual.
In light of this, we recommend assigning digital course materials in lieu of placing physical materials. Some helpful strategies to support these efforts include:
We are accepting Summer and Fall 2020 Reserve Requests.
Due to the uncertainty, we encourage all faculty to use digital materials
in lieu of placing physical materials on course reserves.
If we have it in an electronic/streaming form we will put that on reserve.
If we do not, we will buy electronic/streaming versions when possible.
Please contact your Subject Librarian, they will help you find titles that will meet your needs.

Reserves are course-related materials that UH Mānoa faculty have placed in the library for their students to use: books, textbooks, videos, DVDs, CDs, copies of journal articles, notes or copies of exams, faculty's personal copies, and electronic and streaming reserves. The items can be checked out for a limited amount of time so that all students are given the chance to access the materials. All items are taken off reserve at the end of the semester.
