Fall 2020 Reserves Letter to Faculty

Dear Faculty:

In this challenging time, The New School Libraries is dedicated to helping you plan for the Fall semester, providing you and your students access to the resources that you need free from concerns about paying for content or licensing and copyright

Request Your E-Reserves

Request your electronic course materials as soon as possible through the Course Reserves service in Canvas for the Fall 2020 sessions (processing will commence August 1). 

The New School Libraries provides online access to academic resources including articles, books, statistical sources, etc. Please be aware, however, that we are not placing physical items on reserve for the Fall 2020 semester and that textbook ordering is not available from Barnes & Noble. Please see this statement for more information. Please reach out to us. Librarians can help you identify electronic options as an alternative to printing and copying, specifically for textbooks). 

In the fall, library staff will have access to onsite physical materials and are planning to offer scanning services or pick-up by appointment (stay tuned for further information). 

Additional Support and Information

For more information and to view our quick video tutorials, please see the Reserves Guide or visit the Libraries & Archives website. For library news and details about changes to our services, please see our Updates and Resources guide

Please do not hesitate to Ask Us, set up a research consultation via Zoom, and/or get in touch with one of your Subject Librarians. As our services continue to evolve, we look forward to any questions or feedback you have. 

We are here for you.

Thank you,

The New School Libraries
