If you are in other Feinberg programs, you will use Blackboard to access your electronic reserve articles, book chapters, and other online content. Please contact your instructor if you have questions about where your materials are located.
Reserves via NUcat
Textbooks, DVDs and other physical material that has been selected as a reserve item for a particular course are usually held at the Galter Library Circulation Desk (sometimes referred to as the Reserve Desk), found on the first floor, near the library entrance.
You can search for these items by title using NUcat, the Northwestern online catalog.
Print reserves may be checked out for two hours' use anywhere in the library, and cannot leave the library at any time.
Use the online submission form in Blackboard to request any type of reserve item (both electronic and physical) for your classes.
The Galter Library usually places a copy of a course's required text or texts on reserve at the Circulation Desk. Instructors' personal copies may be submitted, but the library makes every attempt to purchase books needed for course reserve.
Contact Rodney Jackson at (312) 503-8126 or email Rodney for further information on submitting reserves.
