Faculty members who wish to place materials on reserve for use by students enrolled in courses for which they are serving as the instructor should contact the Library Services Desk or complete the Reserve Request Form available at https://library.uni.edu/services/borrowing/course-reserves/reserve-request-form If the items normally are located in the Fine & Performing Arts Collection, the staff in that unit should be contacted. Stacks titles related to art or to music may be placed on reserve in either location. Library staff will determine whether the materials are available in the Library’s collections, and whether, under current copyright law, they may be made available for reserve use. If a book, video, or other item which a faculty member wants placed on reserve is not available in the Library’s collections, the staff will forward the request to the Resource Management Unit.. RMU staff will verify availability and cost, and route the request to the appropriate Collection Strategist Librarian for review. Single copies of items wanted for reserve use are ordered whenever funds permit. Multiple copies may be ordered when course enrollments warrant and funds permit.
Faculty also may place personal copies on reserve, when their use is permissible under copyright law.
Additional information about Library reserve policies is available at the Course Reserves page.
