Important notice for fall 2020 reserves processing:
Due to the COVID-19 situation and according to the recommended guidelines from the REALM Project for quarantining library books, the Library is not able to allow print reserves offering books or notebooks for check-out. DVDs will be allowed for the fall 2020 semester. Faculty are strongly encouraged to submit e-reserves processing requests for book chapters and articles. Library staff are able to make 10% or less of a whole book available via e-reserves. Faculty are also encouraged to contact their library liaison in order to find electronic versions of print materials or alternative reading or viewing materials.
Faculty can submit electronic reserve requests by sending requests via email to email@example.com. Electronic reserves processing is available for book chapters, articles from bound periodicals, e-books, e-journals, streaming video, streaming music and photocopied material. Faculty can submit items already in electronic format via firstname.lastname@example.org. Electronic format now available for electronic reserves include: pdf, jpg, gif, tiff, doc, ppt, html files and urls.
Reserves lists will be removed at the end of the semester, unless Reserves staff are notified to do otherwise.

In those instances the Reserve staff will attempt to purchase permission via Copyright Clearance Center.
