Reserves Scanning

Faculty! If you have required textbook readings, please let us know if you'd like your readings made available for free for your students--please see the form below to do so. 

As a courtesy, the Reserves unit is providing scanned copies of required textbook readings to teaching faculty to post to Blackboard. Doing so will enable your students to access your required readings for free, while the library's physical reserves are closed.

To request scanning, please submit the Reserve Textbook Scanning Request Form.   Please allow up to five (5) days for processing.  All submissions must comply with copyright law and fair use principles. 

  • Please fill out the form properly. All required fields must be completed.
  • Please enter the ISBN number with digits only, no dashes (-). [i.e., 13 digits 9781524763169 or 10 digits 1524763160]
  • Please list either chapter numbers or page numbers.   [i.e., chapters 2,5,9, and 10 OR  p.47 or pp.12-34]
  • Please remember that the syllabus file size is a maximum of 10MB. If the PDF version is too large, please try MS Word.
  • Please submit the syllabus for the current term. Please do not submit the fall 2020 syllabus for the spring 2021 term.

**If the text is not already owned by the Library, an order will be submitted for purchase. However, we cannot promise or guarantee when or if the item will arrive in time to be processed for the course.**

Please send any inquiries to Mrs. Santa Ojeda, Reserves Manager at sojeda@hostos.cuny.edu.
