Electronic reserve (e-reserve) is an easy and convenient way for students to access course reserve material from any computer with an internet connection, at any time. By using their name and Adelphi user ID, students can access articles, syllabi, URL’s, book chapters and schedules that have been provided by their professor.
Additional information on fair use and copyright guidelines can be found on the following sites:
The Adelphi Libraries limit professors to no more than 25 items per course. Faculty with submissions exceeding this limit should consider arranging for a course pack. For more information, contact the campus bookstore.
Electronic submission: An electronically submissible form can be accessed via ecampus: http://ecampus.adelphi.edu/e_reserves/index.php. A copy of the associated reserve materials must be submitted either in person or via interoffice mail to the Access Services Desk located on the first floor of the Swirbul Library. All copies to be placed on reserve must be supplied by the requester and should be single-sided. No copies will be returned.
Your material will be processed for e-reserve and the original copy will be put on VFR (or Vertical File Reserve). Therefore, if a student does not have access to a computer, the printed copy can be viewed at the library on a two-hour “room use only” basis.
Note: Please make sure submitted materials are as legible as possible. Legibility problems will only increase after scanning. All copies should be submitted on 8.5×11 standard-size paper without staples. All copies must be single sided.
To ensure your requested reserve or e-reserve materials are available for the start of a semester, please adhere to the following deadlines for submission:
Fall – August 1st
Summer I – May 1st
Spring – January 1st
Summer II – May 15th
Requests submitted after these dates will be processed on a “first come, first serve basis”. These materials may not be available for the beginning of the semester.
E-reserves can be accessed through the Adelphi online catalog (Alicat), by going to http://alicat.adelphi.edu/screens/course.html.
