Textbooks and Course Reserves

Course Reserves

Policies & Guidelines:

Course reserves consist of print and electronic resources made available by faculty through the library and/or online for current student use.  Placing materials on reserve restricts access and use of those materials by library users outside of a given course, and is meant to supplement and enhance the coursework.  Some common course reserve items include books, articles, videos, course syllabi, or class notes.

All physical library material reserves and electronic reserves are to be provided in accordance with current copyright law and respect to Fair Use rights, as outlined by the policies and guidelines of the Penn State University Libraries.  Items placed on reserve are meant only for the noncommercial, educational use of students.  Materials placed on reserve will be available for student and faculty use as a reserve item only during the semester while the course is in session.

*Please Note: it is a violation of copyright guidelines to maintain access to copyrighted material during periods when a course is not in session.

For Instructors:

Physical Reserve Items within the York Campus library are kept behind the circulation desk, and must be requested by students or faculty to be retrieved for checkout and use.  Materials will only be placed on reserve for the semester one week prior to its start, and will be removed within two weeks folowing the end of that semester.

Chapters from copyrighted material, whether placed on electronic or physical reserve, must not exceed 15% of the total pages of content in the source work.  Journal article submissions for reserve cannot exceed two articles from any single issue of a journal.

Item Limits:

  • The limit on items, including both physical and electronic reserves, for any one given course and instructor is 35 total items per semester.  Exceptions to this limit may be arranged by the Reserves Coordinator, at the approval of the Reserves Department at University Park.
  • Only one copy of an item can be placed on reserve for every 25 students currently enrolled in any given course

Processing Times:

  • Physical and electronic reserve items are processed in order of submission, on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • In general, physical reserve items should be allowed at least 48 hours for processing - from when the item is actually received by the Reserves Coordinator.  Items ordered from other campuses may take up to a week to process, and may take longer if the item must be recalled from a patron.

 

Equipment to Borrow

All equipment available for checkout at the York campus library can be requested at the circulation desk by registered students, faculty and staff.  Equipment is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and cannot be reserved ahead of time.
