Notes

Copyright & Fair Use

The library will make a "fair use"/copyright evaluation of all materials to be placed on reserve. If necessary, the library will arrange for licensing. The library will cover up to $10/student (up to $300) per course. Costs exceeding these amounts will be charged to the school or department.  

Use of student materials

In cases of placing students' papers on reserve, we recommend that faculty secure written permission from the student. A Student Permission form (PDF) is available for you to use. 

Use of faculty personal copies

Please bring any personal materials to be placed on reserve to the library Service Desk

Processing

Please allow a week for processing of materials. All materials requested for reserve will be processed in the order they are received. You will be notified when materials are available.
