The UC Davis General Library’s Reserves form has been upgraded to better support faculty and staff who are building Reserves lists for classes. The redesigned database saves time by pre-filling some information and allowing access to course lists from past years. Personal lists can be reused or edited. One can also edit and use information from other departmental lists. To try out the new, improved form, visit the Reserves page.

UC Libraries continue to review systemwide electronic resource packages with the goal of reducing expenditures to cope with price increases, and to allow us to reallocate funds to support emerging areas of research and instruction. The current publisher packages up for review are journal titles for Springer, Sage, and the American Chemical Society.
We are seeking feedback from UCD faculty, research staff, and grad students to help identify which titles to cancel or to add. Your comments will be forwarded to librarians.
