your Reserve Material Request Form(s) to the Circulation staff as
soon as possible. Although every effort will be made to place items on
reserve as quickly as possible, it can
take five working days to process materials and make them available to
students. This is particularly true when many requests are
received at once or at the last minute, when citations are incomplete,
or when materials aren’t part of library collections.
choose one of three types of reserve—two hour, one day, or three day. Please
indicate whether two hour reserve materials may be checked out
overnight. For a different arrangement, please contact the Circulation
Supervisor at extension 3882 or 3870.
materials to be placed on reserve must be brought to the circulation
desk at least five working days before the date they are to be made
available to students. All items must have the following information
attached: 1) name of instructor; 2) course number; 3) name of course;
4) when this item is to be available to students; 5) when this item is
to be pulled from the reserve shelf; and 6) item reserve period. (This
gives the technical services department time to create any new records
that may be necessary.)
owned materials that may be placed on reserve include all materials
that are permitted to be charged to students, as well as some special
items. This includes books, government documents, and periodical
issues and volumes. Items
from special collections such as rare, rare-old, or reference may not
be put on reserve.
items that are put on reserve must have copyright clearance from the
publisher, be in the public domain, or otherwise comply with Federal
copyright law. Please refer to the copyright compliance guidelines for
more complete information.
materials are returned to faculty or to library shelves at the end of each
semester. If you wish to retain items on reserve for the
following semester and doing so does not violate copyright, please
notify the Circulation Supervisor before the end of the semester. Otherwise it will
be assumed that they are to be returned to normal circulation.
