On-campus faculty wishing to place print articles and books on reserve for the summer semester must do so seven days in advance of reserve reading assignments. Copies of journal articles to be placed on reserve should be brought to the Circulation Desk. For electronic reserves, materials should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester in which they will be used.

Library Reserve materials are provided in two formats: in print at the reserve desk in the Perry Library and distance learning sites, or electronically via the Web to any registered Old Dominion student, faculty or staff member. In accordance with copyright guidelines, electronic access is password protected. The campus ID number without spaces or hyphens is the username, and the word viva in lowercase letters is the password.

Submissions after the beginning of a semester will be processed as quickly as possible, but please allow at least seven days before assigning materials that have been submitted for E-Reserves once classes have begun.

Information about E-Reserves is available from the Library Services option on the library's Web site or at: http://www.lib.odu.edu/services/ereserves. For more information about E-Reserve, contact Marie Howard at mmhoward@odu.edu, 683-4154 or 683-4163.

For more information about reserve materials, contact Virginia S. O'Herron, assistant university librarian for information services, at 683-4186.
