Copyright Information and Resources

Professors may place the following items on reserve at the Oviatt Library:

  • Library-owned books (print reserve only)
  • Photocopies or other reproductions which fall under the doctrine of fair use or for which the professor has obtained copyright permission (e-reserve or print reserve)
  • Professors' personal copies of books (print reserve only)

The following material is not permitted on reserve:

  • Photocopies from ‘consumable’ works, i.e. workbooks or standardized tests
  • Items which fail to fall under the fair use guidelines and for which the professor has not obtained copyright permission.

Other guidelines

  • Only two copies of any book or reproduced item may be placed on reserve; this is due to limited shelf space
  • The full bibliographic citation for any articles reproduced must appear on the first page of the article
