Adelphi University Libraries’ course reserves policies were in desperate need of reform. Faculty were unhappy with the burdensome process the Libraries had implemented and as a result, many didn’t use the library for their course materials. The Libraries leveraged the COVID-19 shutdown and the resulting shift in library priorities, faculty needs and student expectations to reevaluate their role in supporting teaching and learning. As a result, the Libraries are better integrated into the curriculum, creating a seamless experience with course resources for both faculty and students. Moving forward, the library is now well positioned to better support strategic initiatives, such as higher education affordability and access to information.
