The Phillips Library offers a full range of library services to our faculty including course reserves, reserves copyright compliance, purchase of recommended materials, unlimited interlibrary loans, networking with research assistants, and extended check-out periods. As a matter of fact, we kind of spoil you guys.
How to do reserves:
Reserves let students have access to course materials!
All books listed on course syllabi will be placed on reserve in the library. Typical Reserves are for in-library use only, though one week check-out for our additional Reserve copies is offered. Each semester, the Reserve materials are placed on the Reserve Shelf in the library, organized by instructor & class.
Needing books on the Reserve shelf or help with eReserve materials for Moodle?
Please contact the Reserves Librarian, Amanda Ross. To ensure that your Reserve Shelf has all necessary books, please send book lists to either Amanda Ross or the Dean's assistant before the beginning of each semester. eReserve permissions are also checked during this time (also checked as-needed during the semester). Amanda can help with posting & digitizing possible eReserve material to Moodle.*
Want to see what Reserves are on the Reserve shelf?
To search the Reserves, use the PTS Library Catalog. A Course Reserve search allows a search for items on reserve for various classes. To perform a Course Reserve search, click on the Course Reserves tab, select an item from one (or more) of the following drop-down lists: Instructor, Department, or Course. Click the Search button to begin your search. Click the Reset button to clear the search page.
"Faculty Surrogates” are designated borrowers (often a research assistant) who may check out library materials for faculty members when specifically authorized to do so. Those receiving a borrowing authorization must have their own access & borrowing privileges for the library. Faculty members are responsible for materials checked out to them by their authorized surrogate borrowers, & faculty members are also responsible for returning these materials to the library by their due date. Overdue notices will be sent to the faculty member.
Interlibrary loan materials may also be obtained by surrogates.
To set up a surrogate, please contact the Library or call (918) 270-6437.
*Course reserve materials must comply with the U.S. copyright laws and seminary policies. The library will not knowingly place material on course reserve which violates the U.S. copyright law and/or seminary policies pertaining to copyright.
