What Can Be Placed on E-Reserve
Some examples of items that may be placed on E-Reserve are:
Articles from journals, periodicals, or newspapers
Chapters from books
Materials you have created
N.B.: copyright permission may be required prior to placing items on reserve
Instructors who wish to place items on e-reserve may need to obtain copyright permission and will need to complete the library’s e-reserve form.
To determine whether a given item meets Fair Use and does not require further copyright permission please see the Copyright and Reserves tab.
If acquiring copyright permission is necessary please see the Home tab for instructions.
When filling out the E-Reserve form, located on the left-hand side of this page, it is extremely important to enter all fields as completely as possible.
The contact and course information is needed to gain access to your Canas course.
The citation information is essential for locating library owned materials to be placed on e-reserve, determining if a durable link is available (these links may be used freely from semester to semester), and for crediting the author (a warning concerning copyright restrictions and a citation will be added as the first page to each item posted).
In the “Article location or how you will provide a legal copy” box please indicate whether the item is attached, if it can be located in materials owned by the library, or provide a link to one of our databases (See "Persistant Linking to Library Sources" for more information.)
If the item cannot be found in one of these ways please deliver a paper copy to the Access Services desk
NOTE: if you do not have access to the resources you want to put on reserve please contact Thom Zantow (email@example.com 964-4238). The Reserve forms are unable to act as a surrogate ILL form.
