The library may already have the book your students need!
There are hundreds of thousands of ebooks in the collection, many of which can be used by a whole class simultaneously. Search WorldCat Discovery to find the book you need, or to discover new titles.
Faculty are encouraged to place course materials on reserve at the circulation desk in the Smith Library for students to use for free. Materials can include:
CDs & DVDs
Almost anything with enough mass to support a barcode!
There are several types of reserves:
Closed – for 3 hour use within the library only
24-Hour, 3-Day, 5-Day – must be returned to the library within a certain time
Bring your materials to Smith Library, or submit your list of library items to Becky Rockwell or Andy Kulp.
Copying materials to place on reserve?
Federal copyright law places several limits on library reserve collections. One of the most important is the requirement that a faculty member obtain permission from the copyright holder for copied items to placed on reserve for longer than one semester. This provision applies even if the Library or the professor owns the item which is duplicated.
