Class Assignments

When an entire class is looking for materials on the same subject, the library's resources can quickly disappear from the shelves. Teachers can help by informing the library when they assign work that requires library research.  We will then reserve appropriate materials for in-library use only.  This way students are guaranteed access to them.  We can ensure items for reserve collections in these ways:

  • With 3-10 days notice, materials currently on the shelves may be reserved for in-library use.
  • With 3 weeks notice, materials currently on the shelves, plus materials out on loan will be held to be put in a reserved collection.
  • With 8 weeks notice, new materials may be ordered if the library has nothing or little on a topic, if funds are available, and if the materials conform to our collection development policy
