STEP 1: Verify that the Library does not own any of the materials you've
selected as part of our Electronic Resources. Use
our "List of Full Text e-journals" through the electronic
resources page to do this. The
library reference team will be happy to assist you if
you need help.
STEP 2: Locate all items to be placed on reserve. Photocopies that are
to be scanned must be submitted in portrait style and on
letter size 8.5" x 11" paper. If the FGCU Library does
not own an item, request that the library purchase the
material or borrow it through inter-library loan (ILL). Purchasing
and ILL can be very time consuming so we recommend requesting
materials six weeks in advance.
STEP 3: Get a Course Reserve Request Form and fill it out COMPLETELY. Forms are available from the circulation desk or on the Reserves page of the library web site. To complete this form, tell us who you are, which course the materials are intended for, and describe the items you
are placing on reserve.
