Print and Audio/Visual Reserves

Guidelines for putting print and audio/visual materials (books, photocopies, DVDs, VHS, and CDs) on Reserve:

  • Bring the material for reserve, or a list of items to be placed on reserve that includes call numbers and titles, to the Circulation Desk. Please allow at least one business day before the material is needed in class.
  • If you give the request to a student worker, please make sure they take note of your name.
  • Please give the students in your courses exact references when referring to your reserve material.
  • Please observe the 10% rule and follow the fair use guidelines, listed on the Copyright Information page, when placing photocopies on reserve. Library staff reserve the right to remove photocopy material from reserve if it does not meet fair use guidelines.
  • Please notify library staff before removing personal copies or library copies from the reserve shelves
  • In all cases, a lawfully obtained copy will be used as the basis for an electronic reserve item.  If a needed material is not already a part of the library collection, the Library will purchase a copy.        

         ***Interlibrary Loan materials MAY NOT be placed on reserve.

Additional Guidelines for DVDs, VHS and CDs

  • DVDs, VHS (located in the library basement), and CDs can be put on reserve. Please contact the Center for Teaching and Learning to schedule a class viewing.
  • DVDs and VHS can be viewed by individuals and small groups in the library; please refer students to library staff. Students will have 3 hours to view a movie after it is checked out.
 

Electronic Reserves

Guidelines for E-reserves:

E-reserves are small sections of books or anything that would have otherwise been placed on photocopy reserve. They are accessed through Moodle and are password protected, so only students in your class may view the material. The Center for Teaching and Learning periodically offers classes on Moodle for professors who wish to maintain a course or put up e-reserves by themselves

  • So that required permission may be obtained, an E-reserve request form must be turned in 3 weeks prior to any item being reused a 2nd term .  If the cost to place the material on reserve exceeds the $150 limit, the material will not be placed on reserve.  Materials being used for the 1st time must be turned in 3 days prior to planned use.
  • When selecting material for e-reserve, please follow the 10% rule and the fair use guidelines listed on the Copyright Information page.
  • If you are selecting journal articles, please check to see if they are available electronically in one of the library databases or electronic journals. Most articles can be linked to the Moodle page for easy access, which prevents the need for scanning and adheres easily to copyright recommendations. Once you determine that an article is available electronically, please note that on the E-reserve request form. (In cases where a professor submits a paper copy of an article for reserve when an electronic copy exists, the electronic copy will be used instead, and a link to the article will be made available via Moodle.)
  • The total amount of material included in electronic reserves for a specific course should be a small proportion of the total assigned reading for the course. E-reserves are not a substitute for textbooks and may not be used for coursepacks.  If a coursepack is desired, Linda Minteer at the bookstore can offer assistance and students will be required to purchase the assembled coursepack through the bookstore.  As a best practice guideline, reserve materials should be used primarily for supplemental readings and not core course readings.
  • Library staff reserve the right to determine if materials will be placed on course reserve, make the final determination if copyright permission is necessary, limit the number of course reserves for a given course based on copyright constraints, royalty costs, etc., and to remove or prohibit use of material for e-reserve without notification if it is determined that the use violates copyright law.
  • In all cases, a lawfully obtained copy will be used as the basis for an electronic reserve item.  If a needed material is not already a part of the library collection, the Library will purchase a copy.        

         ***Interlibrary Loan materials MAY NOT be placed on reserve.

 

Budget Limits

  • The Library will impose a maximum limit of $400/class for course reserve copyright permissions.
  • The Library will impose an upper limit of $150 per item for copyright permissions.  If permission is required, but would cost more than $150, the Library will not place the material on reserve.
