I would like to suggest that engineering textbooks on course reserves have at
least one copy available for more then 3hours, maybe a few days… because 3h
loans are simply not enough … and since the library no longer allows inter-library loan requests from other libraries for course reserved material, I think this would be a reasonable solution to this problem
Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you for writing to the Suggestion Box. We have received similar suggestions for business textbooks and I’m sure that other disciplines would like to have this option as well. We are currently looking into whether what you suggest is feasible, but we want to ensure that everyone has fair access to the books. If you think your particular course does not have enough textbooks available, you may want to suggest the library purchase an additional copy on the following page: http://library.concordia.ca/services/collections/suggest.php
With a CREPUQ card, you may also borrow a textbook in person from another university library (see other library catalogues: http://library.concordia.ca/research/internet/otherlibraries.html ).
