NEW ONLINE SUBMISSION FORM FOR E-RESERVE USERS!
All E-Reserve Requests now require an online form that includes a copyright evaluation for each item placed in the system. You may attach documents directly to the form or bring them to the Circulation/Reserve Desk on the 2nd floor.
WHY THE CHANGE?
Because of developments in copyright cases, particularly the Georgia State decision*, we are insuring copyright compliance for protection of the University and University community. Those submitting e-reserve requests are required to make sure their submissions are copyright compliant.
Submission in electronic form will help us make your documents available more quickly. New submissions may be:
Scanned and converted to PDF format, or Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or similar electronic files, and attached directly to the electronic submission form. They may also be e-mailed to email@example.com or brought to the Reserve Desk on a floppy or USB drive. Be sure to provide your department name and course number.
Reserve staff can convert paper reserve materials to an electronic facsimile. Paper documents MUST be single-sided and free of creases, holes, staples, etc. Otherwise, processing may be delayed because of scanner jams and/or re-copying.
Depending upon the volume of requests for electronic reserve, particularly at the beginning of the semester, it may be a few days before your documents are accessible.
After we process your material, we will send you the course password(s) and instructions on accessing the electronic reserve web site. Course password protection helps us comply with copyright law.
Finally, these guidelines regarding Fair Use Provisions of the United States Copyright Law will be applied:
Exams, syllabi, lecture notes, journal articles, a few book chapters, charts and maps are acceptable material for electronic reserve.
The Reserve Services staff will not place materials on electronic reserve if the nature, scope, or extent of copying is judged to exceed reasonable limits of fair use.
