Materials which are important to a class, such as required readings—journal articles, books, past exams, extra copies of textbooks, etc.—may be placed “on reserve” by a professor.
Where Reserves May Be Found
Print reserves are located at the Kreitzberg Library’s Circulation Desk. A list of reserve materials for each course can be viewed in the Library Catalog under Course Reserves.
How To Borrow Reserve Materials
Ask the library staff member at the Circulation Desk for the items. Please provide the professor&rsqup;s name, the course number, and the title of the items.
Present your library card. Reserve materials must be checked out.
Return materials by the end of the loan period, which may be for 2 hours, 4 hours, 1 day, 3 days, or 5 days. It is the responsibility of the borrower to know when the item is due. You may ask for a printed receipt of all charged items which displays the appropriate date and due time. Reserves with 2- or 4-hour loan periods must stay in the library. If reserve materials are not returned on time, there is a $1 per hour overdue fine.
The library’s course reserve service is for Norwich faculty who wish to place course materials on reserve for their students. Most often these materials are in demand by many students over a short period of time, and therefore must be loaned for only a few hours or days. Reserves also allow a faculty member to provide students with controlled access to items not in the library&rsqup;s own collection, such as personal books and audiovisual works.
Before materials are placed on reserve, their use must adhere to the U.S. Copyright Law. The library also uses the American Library Association’s Model Policy Concerning College and University Photocopying for Classroom and Library Reserve Use (1982) as a guideline in providing reserve services.
