Personal copies: We will place personal copies of books and other materials on reserve. These items will be available in our Course Readings Area where students can easily access them. We may place a barcode and other identifying labels on a book; the library is not responsible for lost or damaged items. Students may use these items quite heavily, we cannot guarantee their condition when they are returned to you.
Processing Time for Course Reserve Materials
Materials will be processed for reserve within 24-48 hours.
At the start of the semester (2 weeks before and after classes begin) processing time may take a day or two longer.
Reserve Policy Statement
By placing items on reserve for your students, you assume responsibilty for the copyright/fair use evaluation of all materials before submitting them to the library for processing.
Due to the limited space available for reserves, the Library cannot provide long-term storage of books or readings. Books and readings are removed from reserves and returned to the stacks or the professor at the end of each semester.
