Fill out a reserve request form (PDF) and give it to a Circulation Assistant at the Circulation Desk along with the item. A policy statement (PDF) gives details about faculty, staff, and user responsibilities for reserve materials.
If the Library's Catalog indicates that UAS has the item:
- then bring the item to the Circulation Desk and fill out a reserve request form (PDF) to give to a Circulation Assistant along with the item.
If UAS does not own the item:
- Check UAS databases (for articles) and netLibrary or ebrary (for books) to see if the item is available in full text. If so, ask a librarian how to link to these from your class site. or
- Ask the author of an article or chapter to send you a reprint and put it on reserve. or
- Submit a photocopied article or chapter - one copy permitted for each 15 students enrolled in your course. The "fair use" provision of the Copyright Act covers a single term's use; for subsequent terms, ask the publisher for permission, pay fees & keep good records. or
- Scan an article and make it available within a secure, password-protected UAS Online site for students in your course, but only for a time period equivalent to a "class session" see the Copyright FAQ for details. or
- Ask the Library to purchase a copy of the book, video, audiotape, as we do not put materials from other libraries (local or remote) on reserve.
