Confused about IC Library Reserves?

I. Book Reserves can still be submitted directly through Leganto if you’re comfortable using it; it works using Sakai.  See our Leganto guide for more information on how to request items for reserve or add items to a reading list: .

If you are having difficulty with Leganto & Sakai, send your titles for Reserves via email at Providing complete citation and course information will expedite processing. Requests are processed in the order they are received.

If we don’t have the book, I can submit an order for it if it is available; we can rush it but there will still be time to receive and process the order.  Note if you have a preference to ebooks (pricing and availability depends on the publisher).  We generally don’t purchase textbooks but I can make an exception. I can assist you with searching for a free online textbook using one of the following search engines:

II. Video Reserves can be submitted using this form: If we don’t own a film I can purchase a DVD or Blu-ray if it is available. Scheduling videos for class can be done directly through our Library Search; instructions: .  If you have trouble finding a specific video let me know; I like to use the search on the Film tab as it automatically limits to Video format:

New: APA Manual – 7th edition

The library now owns the 2020 7th edition of the APA Manual:

Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association : the Official Guide to APA Style. Seventh edition., American Psychological Association, 2020. . Three copies circulate in the building at the Citation Table near the Research Help Desk; they don’t need to be checked out but it is good if they’re returned to the Help Desk or Citation Table. One copy is already on Reserves.
