Campus is very quiet these days so I suspect that a good proportion of my target audience is vacationing. But for those of you who are in town and already planning your classes for Fall Quarter, might I offer a suggestion? Please consider sharing your syllabi or at least your reading lists with me, or the librarian with whom you work most closely. (Click here to see a list of subject specialists and contact information.) Doing so will: 1. help me ensure that the library has at least one copy of the materials your students will be reading, and 2. better enable me to build our literature collections in ways that complement the teaching and research done at UCLA. Rest assured that I will not share your syllabi without permission.
Just as a reminder, if you are intending to put materials on reserve, there is an online Faculty Reserves Request form, for your convenience.
