THOMAS J. GARLAND LIBRARY
The library reserve service allows
faculty and administration to place books, assigned readings, and other material
on reserve at the circulation desk. Please use the following guidelines
when placing materials on reserve for class use:
- A Reserve Request Form must be
completed for each separate item being placed on reserve. Copies of this form
can be obtained at the circulation desk, or the form can be downloaded and
printed from the library website under Request Forms:
- Please allow 48 hours processing time
for reserve materials.
If the reserve
is a library book or audiovisual, speak with a librarian regarding any
overnight circulation that is allowed for the students of the specific course
and include information on the form.
- Due to space limitations, reserve
material cannot remain in the library permanently. Materials may stay on
reserve for the length of time indicated on the Reserve Request Form up to one
semester. Materials not picked up by then will be returned via campus mail.
- If the reserve is a photocopy, it is
the responsibility of the instructor to make sure the material is legible.
- A complete bibliographic citation
must be included with all photocopies.
- Please provide no more than two (2)
copies of photocopied Reserve readings, one stapled for reading in the
library, one with a paper clip for making copies. No two-sided copies.
and other materials are accepted for reserve. The library will place a
barcode on each photocopy and personal items for circulation purposes.
While all efforts will be made to safeguard these items, the library is not
responsible for any damage or theft of personal items.
The following materials may not be
placed on reserve:
- Periodicals from the Tusculum Library
collection- This ensures that these materials are accessible to all library
patrons. Faculty members are welcome to submit photocopies of articles for
reserve, provided they fall under Fair Use guidelines, or written permission
has been obtained.
- Materials from the Special
Collections or the Reference Collection.
- Materials from other Libraries.
- Any material in violation of the
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code)
governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted
material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries are
authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified
conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any
purpose except 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 law.
This may apply to software and other non-print formats as well. For more
