Electronic Course Reserve Faculty Guidelines

The library will use the following guidelines when placing items on electronic reserve:

  • Materials will be placed on Electronic Reserve only at the request of the instructor.
  • Materials submitted by the semester deadline will be ready for the first day of class. Those submitted after the deadline can take up to 2 weeks to process until about the 3rd week of class when the workload generally allows for 48 hour processing. Please plan accordingly.
  • All materials will be processed in the order received.
  • Materials submitted for electronic reserve can also be placed on print reserve at the Rod Library.
  • Class notes that are added throughout the semester, will appear under one title then will be sub-listed by date, unit, or chapter as specified by the faculty member.
  • Items on Electronic Reserve will not be available after the last day of the semester.
  • Fair Use Guidelines of traditional print reserves also apply to electronic reserves.
  • Electronic reserve systems should not include any material unless the instructor or the library possess a lawfully obtained copy.
  • It is the instructor's responsibility to seek copyright permission when necessary and to provide a copy for the library to keep on file. Permissions currently on file do not apply to electronic reserves.
  • The Electronic Course Reserves system allows links to web sites to be added to your reserve list.  The library reserves the right to reject any link based on copyright restrictions.
