Reserves Request Form

Electronic Reserves through Brightspace

Reserves staff will upload articles, book excerpts, audio, and video clips on Brightspace, within our policy. 

  • One chapter per book and no more than 10% of the book, if protected by copyright, or one article per journal issue.
  • 15 items maximum for items that need copyright permission (articles from electronic databases do not require copyright permission). The limit for copyright fees is $200 total for each permission granted for reserves use.
  • If the library has or can acquire a multi-user e-book of the title, we will add the link to your course reserves in Brightspace. Learn more about our Open and Affordable Textbook Initiative.
  • If you want to request that the library acquire new streaming media, use the Streaming Video Request Form. If you would like existing streaming media linked in your Brightspace course, you can use the form below and select Streaming Video from the drop down menu.

Print Reserves at the Circulation Desk

Books, videos, and CDs from either the library collection or the faculty member's personal collection ("personal copies") may be placed on reserve.

  • Library staff will retrieve books from the library's collection. Please allow 3-5 business days for processing into print reserves. Faculty members will be notified of any delay.
  • Place personal copies at your own risk; the library is not responsible for any lost or damaged personal items. 
  • We suggest choosing a three-hour loan period for reserves items, to increase the availability of the item to other students in the class and reduce the risk of loss or damage. Faculty may elect to set the loan period of print reserve items at one hour, three hours, one day, or three days. 

Please see Reserves @ the Library for more information. View the library's Copyright Policy for more information about copyright.
