To request a reserve purchase, fill out the Course Reserves Request form. Include as much information about the item as possible (title, author, ISBN, edition). It is important to submit reserve purchase requests well in advance of the date they are needed in your class.
The library will make every reasonable effort to fulfill purchase requests for reserve. However, because of budget and space constraints, we cannot guarantee to purchase all items requested for reserve. Additional justification for a purchasing may be required for more expensive materials. We will not purchase multiple copies of a title.
E-books are the preferred format for reserve texts and will be purchased in lieu of print whenever possible.
We accept materials such as books, videos, and audio CDs for reserve.
Articles, chapters, e-books, videos and audio files can be shared with students via LATTE, Brandeis University's online learning environment.
Journal articles and e-books can be shared easily with students by linking to the article/e-book within a LATTE course. You can even create a link to specific chapters within a book. For help with linking to e-resources, please contact the Technology Help Desk.
Audio materials (language lessons, music files, etc.) can be digitized and shared with students in your LATTE course. Please contact the Technology Help Desk to request these materials well in advance of the start of the semester.
Videos from the library's collection can be made available on LATTE. Please visit the page LATTE Videos page for more information on this service.
