Print & Media Guidelines

 Important Information About Course Reserves During COVID-19

  • Print Reserves, including the scanning and converting of physical materials, are suspended until library services resume on campus.
  • To request that online resources (articles and more) be added as an URL link on Moodle, faculty can use the new Course Reserves request form.

Please download the form, and type or print clearly. Send your list to the appropriate reserves contact person. (See below.)


Print & Media Reserves Guidelines

Books, DVDs, CDs, etc.

Materials belonging to Smith may be placed on reserve and included on your reserve list.

Journal Articles

The libraries prefer to make articles available on e-reserve in Moodle whenever possible, rather than keeping entire issues/volumes on the reserve shelf. To place an entire periodical issue or volume on reserve, please speak to library staff.


To help students find materials easily, please give call numbers for items on reserve and note which items are on electronic reserve on your syllabi.

Materials not Owned by Smith

Ordering Materials

Please order needed reserve materials at least 10 weeks in advance. Faculty Order Form.

On your reserve list, please clearly indicate any items you have ordered. If necessary, reserve staff will submit orders on your behalf.

Five College Items

If an item is out of print, on order or unobtainable, reserve staff may arrange to borrow from a Five College Library for part of the semester. Please consult with reserves staff regarding use of Five College DVDs and videos.

Personal Copies

Please use discretion in providing fragile,valuable or irreplaceable personal copies for reserve. The libraries cannot guarantee their security or condition. You may provide personal copies of videos for reserve if they are copyright compliant.
