Instructors can put library materials, personal copies of items, and photocopies (in compliance with copyright law) on reserve at any campus library for students to check out for 2 hours of in-library use. If requesting a different loan period, we will review the request and confirm if we are able to make the accommodation.
Allow 48 hours for processing before sending students to use the materials. Items requested to be placed on reserve within two weeks before or two weeks after the first day of the semester may experience processing delays due to the volume of items submitted during this time period. If the items need immediate processing please let us know and we will do our best to expedite the process.
Any questions? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
One copy of an item is usually adequate for reserve use. Large classes may need a second copy.
The library does not purchase textbooks used for Pellissippi courses. You may put personal or departmental copies of textbooks on reserve. Ask the publisher if they can provide a copy of your textbook at no charge to put on reserve.
Any materials printed or photocopied from a copyrighted source must include a full citation. Otherwise, processing may be delayed until a citation is provided. Copies will be accepted and held on reserve in accordance with Copyright Law.
Student-created works (ex. sample project or research paper) put on reserve must be accompanied by a release form. Works cannot be processed until the release is received.
Items borrowed from other libraries or borrowed through Interlibrary Loan may not be put on reserve. However, we may be able to purchase a copy.
While we strive to keep all materials secure, please be aware that there is a slight risk of damage to or loss of your items put on reserve.
Due to copyright restrictions, we may not always be able to accept copied materials for reserve. However, we can suggest alternatives, so that you may make full use of our reserve services. See Pellissippi State Libraries' Copyright Guide for Instructors to better understand the legal and ethical use of copyrighted materials in educational settings.
Any student-created work sent to the library for reserve use must be accompanied by a signed release form or a signed statement from the student allowing its use. The materials cannot be processed until the release is received.
