There are multiple ways to add items to your Library Reserves list
Need a chapter or section scanned from a physical item?
Add items to your Library Reserves list by directly searching the Dartmouth Library Search or Catalog.
This is the recommended method when advanced searching is required: Our primary Dartmouth Library Search tool (which includes the library catalog) provides more search precision and filtering of results than the library reserves system's internal search tool (see below).
For ease of use: Have BOTH your reserves list and Dartmouth Library Search open on separate browser tabs or windows so it is easy to move between the two pages.
The material is now on the list for that course under that section. See the populated list in the Library Reserves/Guides page.
Tip: Not seeing the just added item? Refresh the browser for the Library Reserves/Guides page.
Recommended for exact searches of known items : The Library Reserves system's Library Search tool is less robust than the main library search found at https://search.library.dartmouth.edu. Recommended for use when you know exactly what you are looking for and you already know the library owns it.
Adding a video media item?
If there are multiple tracks, please alert library staff of the audio language and subtitle language needed in the streaming version. Click on the citation's title and then use Library Reserve's Notes to reserves staff (right-hand pane) to indicate the audio language and the subtitle language.
Tip: Click on the citation title to see the full record view and to access the item-specific Notes to reserves staff.
Audio and subtitle language options are displayed in the physical item's library catalog record. https://search.library.dartmouth.edu/
The Cite It! bookmarklet allows you to import citation information while browsing web sites. (The tool won't work with browser extensions that block third party cookies or pop-ups.)
This is a method for adding items not owned by the library, web sites, etc., that automatically gathers information needed by library staff to process your request.
Use the Blank Form when materials cannot be found in the library system or online. A liaison librarian may be consulted at any time for assistance with searching and finding course materials.
Click on Add Items + and then choose Blank Form; fill in as much information as you can about the material.
Please use the Notes to reserves staff pane to ask library staff to acquire the material for the course and specify the format, hard copy or e-book, if relevant.
Media items the library does not own should be immediately directed to your liaison librarian for a purchasing decision.
Also note here if you have a personal copy to loan to the library for the term.
