As the Reserves/Copyright Specialist, I manage the reserves books and electronic reserves items at Reed, typically 2500-3000 books and 1500-2000 e-reserves each term. My student workers and I gather books from the stacks, order new books, and process them for the course's reserves. For e-reserves, we scan book chapters and articles, and link articles from electronic journals and e-books. We provide linked syllabi for faculty if they request that service.
I also make sure that we comply with copyright requirements and pay permissions for electronic reserves.
Fun fact: I played music on the soundtrack of My Own Private Idaho by Gus Van Sant.
