Course Reserves Procedures
Items can be put on reserve in the Library at any time during the semester. To put items on reserve, complete a "Reserve Request Form" (available in the Library), and bring to the Circulation Desk. Reserve requests received 3 working days before the semester begins will be ready for check-out on the first day of classes. Requests received after that time will be processed as time permits. Please bring items to the library at least two days prior to mentioning them in class so they will be ready for your students. Items that can be placed on reserve include: MIAD Library items, faculty personal items, and photocopied articles. You may wish to have us create Electronic Reserves for photocopied articles; allow a longer lead-time for E-Reserves. Contact Cathryn Wilson with questions.

Library Purchase Requests Procedures
Faculty input regarding books, media and periodicals for MIAD's library is very important. Notify Library Director, Cynthia Lynch, of any titles you would like to have added to MIAD's collection. The Director's decision to purchase or not to purchase an item will be based on the selection guidelines contained in the library's Collection Development Policy, on the interest of sustaining a balanced collection, and on budgetary limitations.
