Faculty General Reserves Policies




It is the responsibility of each faculty member to retrieve or photocopy all materials to be placed on reserve and bring them to the circulation desk.

Requests will be processed by technical services staff in the order they are received. Please allow at least 48 hours for materials to be available to the students. The 48 hours does not include evening, weekends or holidays.

We will place one photocopy of an article on reserve for every ten students in a class, up to a maximum of five copies. This is in line with the fair use guidelines developed in accordance with U. S. Copyright Law.

No material that violates U. S. Copyright Law will be placed on reserve. Generally, this means that we will place photocopies of one chapter or 10% of a single work, which the library does not own on reserve.

We cannot place materials obtained through inter-library loan on reserve. If we do not own a title, we will purchase it as quickly as possible.

Personal items may be placed on reserve, however the library will not be responsible for loss or damage of personal items.

Course syllabi for the current semester are held on reserve.
