NOTE: The libraries NO LONGER create e-Reserves. Instead, faculty create persistent links to electronic articles and ebooks in the library databases. See the tab in this guide on "Creating Persistent Links." Ask your Library Liaison for further information and assistance.

Reserve materials are removed at the end of each semester. Personal items must be retrieved one week after classes end. Personal items not picked up by the faculty member will be returned via interoffice mail. The library can not assume responsibility for personal items not removed by faculty. Please note: Student work may not be left at the Desk for students to pick up.
Books or unpublished material:
Books may be library owned or personal copies. If the Libraries do not own the book, the Library Liaison may purchase the title. However, this does not apply to textbooks, since the Libraries’ collection development policy does not permit the purchase of textbooks. If the library is not able to purchase a requested Reserve, the faculty person will be asked to provide one. The library will protect the personal item but will not assume responsibility for damage or lost items. Due to space concerns and staff limitations, the libraries maintain a limit of 25 books per course.
Placing other items and student papers on Course Reserve:
The Library, when requested by a faculty member, will place on reserve a copy of a chapter, a short story, a graph, chart, picture, cartoon, poem, short essay, provided such copying conforms to Fair Use. In accepting copies for Reserves, the library assumes that the copies have been made in accordance with Fair Use or been lawfully obtained with copyright permission granted.
Student papers may be placed on Reserve with permission; see permission form above.
Note: Due to copyright restrictions photocopies of the following items can NOT be placed on reserve: a workbook, test, test booklet, answer sheet, or course pack.
