Electronic reserves (e-reserves) are scans of articles or book chapters available on the course management system (CMS) for a particular course. All material placed on e-reserve must be lawfully owned or licensed by the library. Material obtained through interlibrary loan may not be placed on e-reserve.
All e-reserve items must comply with copyright laws and guidelines. Scanned material will be emailed to the faculty requester along with the copyright statement to be posted with the e-reserves. Access to e-reserve material is limited to faculty and students registered for the course. E-reserve material should be removed from the CMS at the end of the semester.
Reserve staff will provide a link to library-licensed material (e-books and electronic journal articles) to be linked in the CMS.
To place an e-reserve request, complete and submit the eReserves Request form. Incomplete forms may delay processing. Please submit Reserves Requests by the following dates:
Fall – July 30
Spring – November 30
Summer – April 30
Material requested for e-reserves after these dates may not be available at the start of the semester.

- An article from a journal(s) physically owned by the library
- One chapter from a book owned by the library
- Music pieces from sound recordings for Music Department classes and seminars, based on Fair Use copyright guidelines for classroom use
