Summer Session(s) 2024 - For Faculty/Instructors

Summer Session(s) are soon approaching and we wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how the UCI Libraries can assist with your course materials. 

The general deadline for Summer Session(s) is Tuesday, May 28th. We are happy to accept requests submitted any time after the deadline, but we cannot guarantee materials will be ready for your students at the start of the quarter if a request is submitted late.

Please fill out the Course Reserves Request Form:

You can also request a scan of a book/chapter or article to post in your Canvas site. You can place your requests through UC Library Search. The Libraries will follow the UC Fair Use for Teaching and Researching Guidelines when evaluating your request.
