Electronic Reserve Guidelines for the Biomedical Library

Reserve materials (both print and electronic) will be processed as they are received. Please allow 5 working days for circulation staff to process items. Please bring one copy of any articles to be placed on reserve. All articles will be placed on Electronic Reserve for remote access unless otherwise specified. Please see the Guidelines for Electronic Reserve.

If materials are to be drawn from one of the library's collections, fill in the call number for each item; we will retrieve the item for you and process it. If SOUTHcat shows that we hold more than one copy of a particular item, please indicate how many copies you want on Course Reserve. We usually suggest that all available copies be utilized.

Copyright Restrictions

The library will only fulfill requests where the user has signified YES to the copyright restriction. The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or other reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright.

* I agree to comply with these restrictions. Please read and check the box to agree with Copyright Restrictions.

An inventory of your Course Reserve Material is recommended each semester. We want to help you keep your Reserve Files as current as possible. Since Reserve Books are in closed stacks with limited charge-out periods, they are not readily available to all library users. Please help us make them available by canceling Course Reserve Materials when they are no longer required for your class(es).
