Course Reserves

In lieu of physical reserves, the VSU Libraries is providing a service to scan materials essential to Fall 2020 courses. Faculty and course instructors may place requests and will receive materials to host in their Blackboard courses. Library staff will determine what can be provided, either through existing or purchased electronic items, by scanning sections from available print materials where possible, or working with faculty and course instructors to find alternative Open Educational Resources (OER) online content. 

All requests may be submitted throughout the semester with at least one week of lead time.
