  Student Information

The University of Northern Iowa Library offers a traditional print reserve and an electronic reserve service.  UNI Faculty can request that the library place on electronic reserve chapters from books, articles, sample tests or papers, lecture notes, journal articles, and other items for their students to read or view.  The Reserve Desk will place items on electronic reserve following the "fair use" provisions of Title 17, Section 107 of the Copyright Act.  Rod Library reserves the right to have more restrictive guidelines than stated explicitly in the U.S. Code.

The Electronic Course Reserve service enhances the print course reserve service currently offered through the UNI Rod Library. Electronic Course Reserves allow UNI students access to scanned reserve materials through UNISTAR. Items can be viewed and printed by users, both on and off campus, 24 hours a day. 

The Electronic Course Reserve service is maintained by the staff of the MultiService Center located on the second floor of the Rod Library. Permanent staff is scheduled at the desk Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
