As you prepare for next semester's classes, remember that librarians in the Reference and Science & Engineering departments at Fogler are available to provide instructional sessions for your students. These sessions can cover specific databases, or a variety of research materials, that will aid your students in their class work.

             B. SUBMITTING RESERVE MATERIALS
Fogler Library offers services for both traditional and electronic reserves. To place course material on reserve, use the form on our reserve web page:
<http://www.library.umaine.edu/reserves/overview.htm>.
To ensure that reserve materials are available for your students, please follow these guidelines: submit your request at least six weeks prior to the first class assignment, provide first generation copies for scanning, and provide a copy of your syllabus. All reserve materials are available through URSUS. Electronic reserves provide 24/7 access to your materials through our Eres system. This system also allows reserve list content to be password access only. For more information about reserves and processing please see our web page at: <http://www.library.umaine.edu/reserves/default.htm>. For assistance, please contact Reference at 581-1673.
