- Due to copyright guidelines, all reserve materials are removed from reserve at the end of the semester, after exams are completed for all courses.
- The only exception to this rule is a course that is officially a two semester (“year long”) course -- items for such a course may stay on reserve for one academic year.
- Faculty placing items on reserve are responsible for informing the Library whether a class is a one or two semester course.
- No items will be kept on reserves beyond one academic year.
- Due to copyright guidelines, articles and chapters/excerpts from books can only be on reserve for one semester (with some exceptions for long-out-of-print material). If needed for more than one semester, faculty must arrange with the publisher for permission.
- For more information on the Copyright Code of the U.S., please visit http://www.copyright.gov/title17.
After items are removed from reserve, personal copies will be returned to the faculty. Faculty are responsible for picking up personal copies when courses are over; personal copies left at the Library over 60 days will be donated to the library collections or, if not needed, discarded to surplus.
- 4 hour, in-library use of an item
- Overnight use of an item – check out an item within 2 hours of the library closing and you may keep it overnight. The item is due back within 1 hour of the library opening the next day. If you check out that same item earlier in the evening, the use period is 4 hours in-library.
- One Day use of an item means that a patron may check out an item any time one day and bring it back by closing the next day.
- A $10 processing charge will be added to the patron record after a Reserve item is overdue for 24 hrs
