All Reserves will be removed at the end of each semester unless otherwise arranged with the Access Services Department in advance.
Special Procedures: Instructors’ Personal Items
Exercise discretion in submitting personal items for inclusion in the Print Reserves collection. The Library will not be responsible for damaged or lost materials.
Adhere to the University’s Copyright and Duplication Policy when submitting items for Reserves.
Personal items will be returned to faculty members via campus mail at the end of the semester unless otherwise arranged with the Access Services Department in advance.
Instructors will be notified when personal items are significantly overdue and are considered missing.
The Sprague Library Reserves policy is based on federal copyright law (17 U.S.C., sec. 107 et seq.), which governs the reproduction and use of the copyright-protected works in the classroom and for individual study, research or scholarship. The law permits libraries, generally considered extensions of the classroom, to provide reproductions (e.g., photocopies) of copyright-protected works for Reserves within the scope of “fair use”.
When adding items to the Reserves collections, the Library adheres to the University’s Copyright and Duplication Policy as enumerated in the Faculty Handbook and retains the right not to include certain items in the Reserves collections if doing so does not comport with copyright law.
