Changes to Physical Library Reserves Process

Effective April 1, physical Library reserves will no longer be processed through Moodle. All physical Library reserve requests for Summer and Fall 2019 classes must be submitted via online form(s) on the Library’s website.

All physical library Course Reserves requests must be submitted by the instructor of record or their delegate (e.g. a learning assistant, administrative assistant, etc). Library staff cannot enter requests on behalf of instructors.

The Library Reserves block in Moodle will remain visible from April 1 through the end of the Spring 2019 semester, to display current reserve items only. The Library Reserves block will be deactivated on May 20. If you would like to save your Library reserves history, please follow the detailed instructions, before May 20.

These changes are necessary because, over the summer, the SUNY Library Consortium will adopt a new library management system, Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo VE® discovery and delivery solution, across all SUNY campuses. The new library system will affect Purchase College Library’s catalog, discovery search, online patron accounts, online renewal process, course reserves, and more.

With the move to a new library management system, all Summer and Fall 2019 library reserves requests will need to be newly entered into the new system. Please complete the appropriate request form for each item you wish to place on physical Library reserve:
