Electronic Reserve Guidelines for FacultyLast Update: June 1, 2004
- Submit reserve items in advance
- All items are processed on a first come first serve basis. Due to the volume of items we receive at the beginning of the semester, it is advised that you submit your readings, syllabi, and other course materials as early as possible to insure that they are available to your students when needed.
- Make sure your copies are clean, clear and not double sided.
- Please make sure your copies are free of black edges. We are able to scan an item more quickly if we do not have to cut, crop, and recopy the readings ourselves. Clear copies insure that the file size will remain small enough for students to download from home.
- All reserve items must have the original title page and copyright page.
- Readings can be put on electronic reserve for 1 semester only without copyright permission. Documents that need to be put on reserve for 2 or more semesters need copyright clearance.
- Reserve request form is required
- Submit a reserve request form per course with the item(s)
- The reserve request form can be found online.
- All ERES pages are archived at the end of each semester.
