Course Reserves Use Policy – For Students
The Georgetown University in Qatar Library provides course reserve services to ensure fair access to high demand course readings.
Reserve items are available on a first come, first serve basis. Reserve items cannot be held, recalled, or renewed. To be considerate of other students, please return reserve readings on time.
Print Book and DVD Reserves:
Printed books and DVD reserves are located at the Service Desk in the Library. Reserve items are available to currently registered students and faculty members; are loaned for 4 hours and can only be used inside the Library.
Placing Books & Articles on Course Reserves – For Faculty
Printed Books & DVDs:
Faculty can select materials that students can borrow for up to 4 hours. If the library does not have the item, a copy will be ordered. Personal copies of books can also be placed on reserve. Contact your librarian for more options or to send your list of items.
Scanned part of printed book (.pdf): The library can scan a part of a printed book (up to 10% of the content or one chapter) which faculty can upload in Canvas. Please contact your librarian with a request.
Electronic resource (journal article, e-book etc): To add a link to library resources in Canvas, you will need to use a permalink. If you cannot locate it, contact your librarian for help. If the library does not have the article, a copy will be requested.
- Entire books cannot be scanned and placed on e-reserve. Limit requests to one chapter or 10% from each book per term (one chapter cannot be taken down in order to post a second chapter).
