Instructors wishing to place items on reserve must fill out the Reserves Request Form PDF. If reserves are requested for multiple courses, instructors must fill out a form for each course.
Per NSU Libraries Copyright and Fair use policy, course reserves items must be owned by NSU Libraries or the instructor making the reserve request. Limits on number of items or amount copied from an item vary by item format.
If an instructor would like to place their personal items on reserve, a completed form should be brought with the items to the reserves coordinator. If no personal items are requested, completed forms may be emailed to email@example.com at John Vaughan Library or firstname.lastname@example.org at the Broken Arrow campus.
Processing times for course reserve items vary depending on the type and amount of materials. Most requests are processed within three business days of submission. Instructors are advised not to refer their students to Course Reserves immediately after submitting a request.
To remove an item from course reserves, fill out the Reserve Removal Request Form and submit it to email@example.com.
Items remain in Course Reserves until the end of the semester they were added. If an instructor would like to keep an item on reserve for the following academic term, they must obtain the written permission of the copyright holder. Items will be removed from reserves if permission is not obtained.
Instructors may request the following lending periods for course reserves items:
Instructors may designate items for only in-library use or for out of library use.
Physical items held by NSU Libraries or owned by the course instructor may be placed on reserve.
Course Reserves items must comply with NSU Libraries Copyright and Fair Use policy. Course reserve items must be intended for educational use and may not be used for the same course for more than one semester unless permission is obtained from the copyright holder.
