The print reserve collection, located in the RESERVES room, near the front of the library, consists of course materials placed in the library by faculty that they feel will benefit their students. Reserve materials may include: current textbooks, journal articles, sample research papers, answer keys, supplemental readings, videos, or CDs. These items are placed on limited loan periods ranging from a "2-hour in-library use only" to a 7-day check out, depending on the instructor's request.
Please also see the instructions on how to embed materials in Canvas below.
Materials placed on reserve in the library are listed under the instructor's name as well as the class name in the reserve section of the library catalog.
All reserve materials must have copyright permission or fall within the fair use guidelines. The reference staff will assist faculty in determining fair use and if there are any costs associated with using selected materials for reserves (the concerns are the same for Canvas related postings and traditional reserves). To get you started, here's a short copyright guide to fair use.
