For Fall 2021 the library will "soft-launch" an optional new Library Reserves service. Items listed in the Ares Library Reserves will be available as usual. For more detailed information about library Reserves and Copyright, follow the links immediately below:

Databases vs. eReserves
The library licenses access to articles in over thirty thousand (30,000) journals. If an article is available in a library database, link directly to the article from your D2L course shell (except for Harvard Business Review articles).
Linking to journal content directly through licensed library databases absolves you of responsibility for copyright compliance for the linked content and absolves the university of potential liability for copyright infringement of that content.
Reserves Desk Items
Library-owned items that normally can be charged out, e.g.
General Collection books
Books, DVDs, VHS, CDs, etc. supplied by a faculty member
Materials Not Accepted for Reserves Desk
Photocopied material that does not comply with copyright guidelines
Consumable materials, such as workbooks, exercises, test booklets, etc.
Entire issues of a periodical
Interlibrary loan items
Entire bound volumes of a periodical, unless approved by a Reference Librarian
Reference Collection items, unless approved by a Reference Librarian
ARES Reserves is where professors can store copyrighted materials for class use.
