General Information

To place items on course reserve, please complete a copy of the Earth Sciences & Map Library Course Reserves Form. Lists can be e-mailed to zveley[at]library.berkeley.edu, returned to the Circulation Desk of the Earth Sciences Library, or faxed to (510) 643-6576. Please submit your course reserve requests to the library as soon as possible (preferably before the beginning of the semester) to allow adequate time for processing, recalling items from patrons, and paging books from other libraries. Lists will be processed in the order they are received.

If you have any questions about placing materials on course reserve or if you wish to check the status of your course reserve list, please contact the Course Reserves supervisor at (510) 643-7041 or send e-mail to zveley[at]library.berkeley.edu.

If you are interested in having your course reserve materials available on the Web, the Library's Electronic Course Reserves Service allows your students to access materials 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For an overview of Electronic Course Reserves go to Electronic Course Reserves.

Guidelines for Placing Materials on Reserve

  • Please include all course/instructor information required on the Course Reserves List; include the name, phone number, and e-mail address of the person to contact should we have any questions or problems.
  • For each item to be placed on reserve, list the author's full name, complete title, edition (if necessary), and call number.
  • Specify a loan period for each item: 2 hours, 1 day, or 7 days. If no preference is indicated, items will circulate for 2 hours.

Guidelines for Personal Copies and Photocopies

  • Place photocopied articles or other loose material in folders or envelopes. (The Library has only a limited number of folders and envelopes available, so please provide your own.)
  • Multiple articles can be grouped together and circulated as a unit. Please submit these items in a folder or envelope and designate a title such as "Articles for Week 1" or "Readings for September."
  • Provide an adequate number of copies for the size of your class.
  • If there are any special instructions for returning your materials at the end of the semester, please let us know.

The Copyright Law of the United States governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. In accepting photocopies for reserves the UC Berkeley Library assumes that the copy or copies have been made in compliance with the fair use provisions of section 107.
