Access to library information available through e-mail

Two new electronic services have been created for Fondren Library Center users. Electronic reserve provides students increased access to reserve materials. Ask-a-Librarian enables faculty, students, and staff to use e-mail for specific questions relating to the library.
Electronic reserve allows convenient access to required reserve materials that must be used intensively for a short time or repeatedly throughout the term. Library staff members work with faculty to compile photocopies of journal articles, class notes, and sample course tests that are digitally scanned and placed on the Fondren Library Center Electronic Reserve Web site. To maintain adherence to copyright laws, access to reserve materials by e-mail is limited to the SMU community.
"Although this service does not replace traditional reserves, it extends the availability of the material beyond library hours and premises," says Carol Baker, director of Public Services.
The availability of librarians also is extended by the Ask-a-Librarian service. Through e-mail, questions can be directed to a librarian. Answers to questions such as "Where should I begin looking for information on this topic?" "I have looked in all the usual places, where else should I look?" or "Why can't I connect to this database from my home computer?" will be received within 24 hours. The service may be found on the Internet at
