General Policies for e-Reserves Spring 2021

  • Due to COVID -19 the FAU Reserve Team is not able to provide physical reserves at this time.

  • If there are print books, DVDs, or photocopied items you would have put on Reserve, please fill out the forms below so the FAU Libraries Reserve Team can attempt to obtain them in an e-format

  • The Reserve Team will try to provide e-reserves of books and materials if you advise us how much of the book you would like to reserve. Copyright restrictions may apply.  Please see additional information here.

  • The Reserve Team will check if a public e-book is available to place on e-reserves.

  • If an e-reserve or e-book is not available through FAU Libraries, the Reserve Team will see if it is possible to purchase an electronic version of the book or materials for the Library.   If an e-version is available, electronic alternatives generally take 5-10 business days to obtain – please plan accordingly.  
  • The Reserve Team will also advise if a used copy of the book is available for students to purchase or rent at a reasonable cost.
  • Not all materials have an e-format for purchase or they may not be digitized on demand. If this occurs, we will notify you and encourage you to contact your Library Faculty Liaison to explore other resources in place of physical reserves.
