The Spring semester will be here before you know it! It’s going to be an especially busy January for Reserves staff as we continue working on an upgrade to our behind-the-scenes library software and transitioning LATTE Videos to new LATTE and a new streaming video system (Ensemble Video). Both of these upgrades will result in faster turnaround times for Reserve and LATTE Video requests as well as a more robust streaming video experience. Very exciting!
With all of this work happening in January, Reserve staff need your help to process your Reserve and LATTE Video requests quickly and efficiently. How can you help? Submit your Reserve and LATTE Video requests as soon as possible! The early bird gets the worm (and their materials available on the first day of classes)!
The best way to submit library reserve requests is via the online reserve form. Faculty members & instructors may complete this form to request books and media for reserve. Need a book, film or CD for reserve that the library doesn’t own? Fill out the reserve form anyway and we’ll try to purchase it. You can check which materials are on reserve for your class in the LOUIS online catalog.
If you’re a frequent flier with LATTE Videos, you may have used the Request History feature to quickly re-add videos to your courses. Unfortunately, your Request History couldn’t be transferred to new LATTE and Ensemble Video. You’ll need to submit a new request for each film, even if they have been available via your Request History in the past. To make a request, use the “LATTE Videos” block in your LATTE course (detailed instructions here). Need a film that the library doesn’t own? Submit your request through the LATTE Videos block and we’ll try to purchase it. You can email email@example.com for more information.
