Do-It-Yourself for Course Reserves: A Student-Driven Service in an Academic Library Academic Article uri icon


  • Texas A&M University Libraries has been hard at work putting the power of course reserves in the hands of its users. Reserves services have traditionally been restrictive, granting only faculty the authority to place items on reserve or allowing students access to items only after they have been checked out. From faculty adding streaming content to their e-reserves to students having hands-on access to their course reserves, this article tells the story of how an academic library system is allowing its patrons to "do-it-themselves.". © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
