Choose a form below and enter the necessary information. Items belonging to the professor should be delivered to the Circulation Desk at Hunter Library; library materials to be placed on reserve can also be dropped off when a request is made to facilitate processing.
All reserves that need to be available the first week of the semester must be submitted and available to process 2 weeks prior to the first day of classes. After the first week of classes, we can usually process material within a week. At the end of each semester, all materials will be removed from reserve unless you notify us that you will be teaching the same class the next semester. You will need to update the appropriate form for any material you plan to keep on reserve.
Complete a Book Reserve Request Form for each class.
Provide originals if possible, clean copies if not.
Electronic Reserves is an extension of traditional library services and will be provided in a manner that respects fair use rights, the rights of copyright holders, and current copyright law. The electronic copying and scanning of copyright protected works for library reserve service are unsettled areas of the law which may be addressed by courts and/or legislation. Hunter Library will monitor legal developments that may affect the application of fair use standards to Electronic Reserves services to ensure that library services are in compliance with the letter and spirit of the U.S. copyright law.
Although fair use ultimately depends on the specific facts surrounding each proposed use, the following guidelines are intended to provide direction for use of the Hunter Library reserves system.
For any questions regarding this policy, call Scottie Kapel at (828) 227-3416 or email her at email@example.com. For general questions about reserves, contact Ken Rogers at (828) 227-3424 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
