Serving the Textbook Needs of International Students through Course Reserves
Ruleman, Alice B.; Riley, Cheryl
Journal of Access Services, v14 n2 p46-52 2017
The University of Central Missouri has experienced a 1,498% increase in students from India since 2012. These international students utilize interlibrary loan to request textbooks at a rate not evident in other student population groups. Their search for course textbooks impacted librarians, staff, and student workers at public desks and on chat as well as the interlibrary loan staff as requests were placed for the titles. In an effort to help meet the demand for textbooks by this student group, the library has implemented a textbook reserves program for the texts needed in the most popular classes.
