Hard Copy Reserves
When an instructor requests that an item be placed on reserve, it is placed on a shelf behind the Circulation Desk for students to request. Examples of such items may be books, journal articles, book chapters, etc. Items are placed on reserve on a semester by semester basis. If you wish for an item to remain on reserve for the following semester, you must notify Circulation/Reserve Staff.
Faculty members may request that their personal copies or books owned by the library and copyright compliant photocopied materials be placed on reserve for periods of:
Library Use Only
Currently, these are the only loan periods that course reserves are able to accommodate.
Faculty members may request photocopies of articles or chapters of books to be placed on reserve. Under the fair use guidelines, photocopies of these materials may be made and used for one semester without requiring permission from the copyright owner. The following information provides examples of the types of materials that do and do not need prior copyright permission. Photocopies of any type of copyrighted material may not be used two semesters in a row under any circumstances.

Print the appropriate reserve request form to bring with the material that you wish to be placed on reserve. Course reserves requests will no longer be accepted without the required paperwork.
Please inform students that in order to access the
materials placed on reserve, they will need to know the Instructor's
name, course number, and title of the material.
In addition to having journal articles, book chapters, etc. on reserve at the Reserve Desk, we now have the capability of providing electronic access to those materials. This service is not automatically provided when you submit a journal article for reserve; you must request that we make it available electronically. Faculty may also use this as a way for students to access required readings for the course. Each article submitted should be no longer than forty (40) pages in length.
