60.03 Materials on Library Reserve

Revised September 7, 2015

Faculty members should submit the Library Reserve List Form and the materials to be placed on reserve at least two weeks before the semester begins. Unless other arrangements are made, materials from Reserve will be returned to the faculty member at the end of each semester (fall, spring, and summer).

The American Library Association (ALA) recommends that only one copy of photocopied material be placed on reserve. Faculty members assume the responsibility for interpreting and conforming to copyright guidelines. Faculty members may choose one of the following reserve statuses for every piece they place on reserve:

  • Use in Library Only: Materials do not leave the Library.
  • 24-hour: Materials are due back to the Library 24 hours after they are signed out.
  • 3 Day: For example, materials borrowed on a Monday are due back the following Wednesday.
  • 8-Day: For example, materials borrowed on a Monday are due back the following Monday.

Please see the Circulation Supervisor for additional information.
