Information for Faculty
The library maintains a Course Reserve section behind the desk on the main level. Items are arranged by course code. In addition to personal copies provided by the instructor, Library materials of any kind may be reserved: circulating books, reference books, DVDs, etc. Typically, Reserve items can be used within the Library only, but the instructor may specify another loan period if needed.
Placing Items on Reserve
Although we work to assure the
security of all items in the library, faculty members placing their own
materials on Reserve do so at their own risk. It is recommended that you clearly mark your name on any personal items you would like to place on Reserve.
Library reserves are considered an extension of the classroom, and the
same rules of fair use apply. The library will accept copies to
be placed on Reserve provided these fall within copyright guidelines:
Under the "fair use" guidelines of current copyright legislation, you may photocopy and distribute to your class:

You must obtain written permission to photocopy and distribute
copyrighted material to your classes in situations that do not fall under these guidelines.
