Course Reserve--Longview

To ensure compliance with copyright law, the Library adheres to the following policies for reserve materials:

Basic requirements:

•       The Library or faculty members must own the materials to be placed on reserve.

•       Access to course reserves is removed at the end of the semester unless an instructor requests an extension.

Fair use guidelines (for a single class or a single semester):

•       No more than 10% of a book

•       No more than one article from each journal issue

•       All material should include the title and copyright pages or the equivalent in full citation

•       Articles should include volume and issue numbers

An instructor wishing to deviate from these guidelines must seek permission from the publisher of the book or article, in order for a copy to be added to their course reserves.

To add an item to our course reserves, please contact the Information Desk (816-604-2080) at Longview Library.
