Instructors wanting to link to their reserve reading list (from Scholar or a departmental page) should start by searching their name or course abbreviation in the reserves system.
Once you are viewing the reserves listing, you can copy the URL for that page as your link.
Note that reserve reading lists are not limited to physical material; you can also include links to ebooks, articles, and other online resources. This way your entire reading list will be available in one place, and you will avoid copyright violations that can result from downloading materials and adding them to Scholar.
The faculty member responsible for the course must sign the Reserve request form, which says all materials placed on reserve for the course comply with the copyright guidelines. A signature is required before items can be processed.
If the graduate/teaching assistant is not the listed instructor on the class timetable, they must have their faculty advisor for the course sign the Reserve request form before it can be processed. If you are not listed as a professor, assistant professor, associate professor, or instructor in the undergraduate or graduate catalog, you must have the listed faculty member's signature.
Only one chapter from a textbook may be placed on reserve at a time. Copies of multiple chapters on reserve concurrently is a violation of copyright law. If a professor submits multiple chapters of a text, the professor will be contacted via e-mail or phone. If Reserve does not hear from the instructor within 5 days, the materials in violation of copyright will be returned by campus mail.
Only one article from the same journal/magazine may be placed on reserve at a time, copies of multiple articles from the same journal placed on reserve concurrently is a violation of copyright law. If a professor submits multiple articles in violation, the professor will be contacted via e-mail or phone. If Reserve does not hear from the instructor within 5 days, the materials in violation of copyright will be returned by campus mail.
Multiple copies of the same article or chapter is permissable. Professors may place one (1) copy of an item on reserve for every 20 students. (EX: 100 students= 5 copies). There is a maximum limit of 9 copies allowed.
There are 4 loan periods available; 2 hour (may leave the library), 2 day loan (may leave the library), 7 day loan (may leave the library), and 3 hour Media library use only. If no loan period is selected on the Reserve request form, the default loan period will be 2 hour (may leave the library).
