How Putting a Book on Reserve Can Help Your Students Succeed
What one relatively small thing can you as a faculty member do to help your students succeed? Place personal or library copies of required and recommended texts on reserve.
How will putting books on reserve help your students succeed? you ask. It will...
- provide access to books that are no longer in print or hard to find or exceptionally expensive.
- ensure that no single student will be able to monopolize the library's only copy.
- help ensure that students will always have access to a copy throughout the semester even if they lose theirs.
