Reserves Overview

The Zahnow Library Circulation Department maintains or facilitates three distinct reserves:

  • General Library Reserves, consisting of books, media, etc. in support of SVSU courses and accessible from the Circulation Desk
  • E-reserves, consisting of digitized articles, book chapters, or links to full text articles that are accessible from instructors' VSpace courses
  • University Reserves, a collection of documents the University makes available to the public including Board of Control Minutes, salary listings and other reports the University publishes.
 

Copyright: Overview

Policy on the Use of Copyrighted Works in Reserves 

  • See "Copyright and Reserves" tab for information as to what requires permission from the copyright holders.
  • Instructors are responsible for evaluating, on a case-by-case basis, whether the use of a copyrighted work on electronic reserves requires permission or qualifies as a fair use.
  • Instructors are required to secure copyright permission, if needed, before items are placed on reserve.
  • Inclusion of materials on electronic reserves will be at the request of the instructor for his or her educational needs.  Materials made available on electronic reserves must include a citation to the original source of publication and a form of copyright notice.
  • The instructor must possess a lawfully obtained copy of any material submitted for electronic reserves.
  • Library reserves staff will check to see whether materials submitted for electronic reserves are available through an electronic database or are otherwise legally available. If so, staff should provide a link rather than scanning and posting the material.  
  • Library reserves staff will delete materials they placed on electronic reserves at the conclusion of each semester.
  • Copyright permission is required when information that is published by another person is used in most circumstances.
  • While there are some exceptions to the copyright permission rules, it is best to obtain permission before any use. Permission can be obtained through a clearinghouse (www.copyright.com) or by writing a letter to the publisher:

Dear Publisher or Copyright Holder:

I am requesting permission to place the following copyrighted material on reserve in print (i.e. photocopied) format and in electronic reserve (i.e. digital format) at Saginaw Valley State University.

[Citation]

Online access is restricted to the students enrolled in my course and is offered free of charge. A copyright statement appears on the electronic reserve screen as soon as the item is accessed.

Because time is of the essence, I would appreciate a timely reply to my request. Thank you for helping me provide fast and efficient service for my students.

Sincerely,
