Please Note: Due to the upcoming Hayden Renovation we will be placing a deadline of November 1, 2019 on all new and updated requests for print and electronic reserves for Fall 2019.
In order to prepare for the closure of Hayden Library, Fall 2019 Course Reserves currently housed at Hayden will be moved to other MIT Libraries locations on November 27, 2019. More information about changes to the Course Reserves service can be found here.
The MIT Sloan School of Management and MIT Global Studies and Languages are currently using the cloud-hosted Canvas LMS (learning management system). If you are a Sloan School or Course 21G faculty or staff member, please submit your electronic reserves requests to email@example.com as an attachment, or use the third page of the Textbook Information Provisioning Form at tip.mit.edu to indicate your request. The Libraries will continue to support e-reserves services for MIT courses using Stellar (all versions) as their course management site. For general inquiries about Canvas at MIT, please contact Sloan's Technology Services at firstname.lastname@example.org
Submit your request through the Semester Books Submission Form. Attach a complete syllabus that includes all the readings that you'd like posted to Stellar clearly marked.
Be sure to include:
We will accept partial reading lists (i.e., readings for the first 5 weeks of the semester) as long as they contain all of the information listed above.
If you don't have a Stellar site, you can request a Stellar site through IS&T. If you encounter technical issues when accessing Stellar, please contact email@example.com to report your problem.
Please note: This service provides materials to support courses with Stellar sites. Please see our Scan & Deliver page for information on how to request article/chapter scanning and delivery from on-campus collections for individual MIT faculty, staff, and students.
Fair use provisions of the copyright law allow use of copyrighted materials on a limited basis for specific purposes without the permission of the copyright holder. To comply with fair use, the Libraries will generally scan and post onto Stellar no more than 10% or one chapter from a single book (depending on the work), and no more than one article per issue of a journal.
Yes. When you submit your request through the Semester Books Submission Form, be sure to include a complete bibliographic citation, and add a note to indicate you'll be providing a photocopy. Then, just drop the photocopy off at any library service desk.
We encourage you to submit reserve requests as soon as possible to ensure that material is available to students when they need it.
Photocopies should meet these guidelines:
We will not scan materials that are illegible or incomplete.
We scan all materials at 300dpi, and create a searchable PDF file.
There is no cost to digitize e-reserve materials in Stellar.
However, if you're using another course management system, you will be charged for scanning. Please contact the Libraries' Document Services department at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing information.
