Course Reserves


  • 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.
