Library Textbooks and Covid19

Student Reminder

A reminder to students that the Libraries’ electronic reserves (e-reserves) system is available and many classes contain the required reading materials for your course.  If you have been using the Textbooks on Reserves in the Libraries in print format, first check Vitalsource (use @maine.edu email to login or create an account) and Redshelf to see if the textbook is available for free for the rest of the semester.  If it is not, ask your faculty member to request the appropriate chapters or pages be scanned and placed on e-reserves.  Faculty can submit scanning requests to usm.reserves@maine.edu

 

Faculty Reminder 

A reminder to faculty that the Libraries’ electronic reserves (e-reserves) system is available and many of the required reading materials for your classes are available.  The Libraries are ready to put additional materials on e-reserves and will scan resources for you. For students who have been using the Textbooks on Reserve in the libraries in print format, please have them first check Vitalsource (use @maine.edu email to login or create an account) and Redshelf to see if the textbook is available for free for the rest of the semester.  If not, please request the Library scan the appropriate chapters or pages be placed on e-reserves.  We cannot scan an entire book due to copyright laws. Please prioritize the order of what is needed so we may help as many faculty as possible in a timely fashion.
