RESERVE SERVICE OPTIONS:
BOOKS*:Please include call number information from Orbis if available when filling out the Reserve Request Form. For a book the library does not own, the library will attempt to purchase and catalog the book for course reserve as soon as possible.
PERSONAL COPIES*:Faculty may provide personal copies of materials for course reserve. Please indicate in the call number field "faculty copy" on the reserve request form.
VIDEO/AUDIO MATERIAL*:Material used in conjunction with course work may be placed on reserve. CSSSI has limited video equipment and audio equipment. We suggest that any video/audio material be placed on 24-Hour reserve so students may take the item out of the library to use.
* Please note: The loan period options for print copies of course reserve material are 2-hours, 24-hours, or 3 days. We suggest 2-hours circulation for print material unless the material is secondary in nature. Electronic course materials have no set loan period within the semester.
- JOURNAL ARTICLES:Journal articles may be placed on course reserve. Copyright guidelines will be applied.
BOOK CHAPTERS/SELECTIONS:Chapters or selections from a single book or monograph may be placed on course reserve. Copyright guidelines will be applied.

To quicken the process, the library welcomes photocopies of requested e-reserves. The photocopies must be:
- The syllabus or reading list must be in Microsoft Word format.

- Copyright Guidelines for course reserves are considered in compliance with U.S. Code: Title 17, Section 107 governing Fair Use
- The factors in determining Fair Use are:
- the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
- the nature of the copyrighted work;
- the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
- the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
- The service of electronic reserves by the library will respect fair use rights, the rights of copyright holders, and current copyright law
- Material will only be placed on reserve for the noncommercial, educational use of students
- All materials placed on reserve will be reproduced from copies lawfully obtained by either the requesting faculty member or the library
