Course Reserves

Library staff are happy to place items on Course Reserve for your classes. We have created a guide that hopefully answers any questions that you have about types of items that may be placed on Course Reserve, how long they may remain on Course Reserve, and how and when to seek Copyright permission for Course Reserve placement. This guiding document has been written in anticipation of being able to support Course Reserves in electronic format and the guidelines and laws in place for their management. We have provided a Sample Permission Letter in this packet as well as an online request form for Course Reserve placement. There are links to helpful sites about Copyright and to the USG site regarding Copyright.
