Instructors may place library items and/or personal copies of books or DVDs on Course Reserves for one semester. During the COVID-19 pandemic, physical items may not be put on reserve. Please locate an electronic version, or ask a librarian to try to find one for you. If a longer period is required, the instructor may either seek copyright permission or ask the library to purchase the item.
Scanned copies of a book section or journal article must be limited in scope, nature, and extent to be within the reasonable limits of fair use.
It is the policy of the library to follow U.S. Copyright Law which permits photocopies of articles and other documents to be placed on Course Reserves for one semester only; we also refer to the American Library Association Website on Copyright.
At the end of each semester, all Course Reserves will be removed. Also, the library will send a list of Course Reserves, along with usage statistics, to each instructor.
Course Reserves items may not be renewed.
Course Reserves requests will be processed within 3 business days (Monday-Friday).
Note: Access to E-Books rotates, which means not all titles are in our permanent collection. The library may be able to purchase titles if necessary.
Materials borrowed from another library, i.e. PASCAL or Interlibrary Loan (ILL) cannot be placed on Course Reserves.
