You may want to consider adding items to our reserve collection for your courses. You may use our copies of books, DVDs, etc., or your own. Feel free to place extra copies you may have of text books on reserve too. Use the form below.

Source Review

We're happy to help your students find and evaluate information sources before or after it's been turned in for a grade. We can:   

  • Comment on content & quality of sources

  • Verify that source types meet assigned criteria, i.e. scholarly articles, etc

  • Indicate citation inaccuracies

  • Analyze whether annotations reflect sources accurately
