Electronic Reserves in Moodle
Faculty can upload electronic copies of course readings in Moodle. Scans from books and journals must be limited and the scope, nature, and extent of the copying must be within the reasonable limits of fair use. For information on fair use considerations for reserves, see http://www.ala.org/advocacy/copyright/fairuse/fairuseandelectronicreserves. LITS will assist in obtaining copyright permission for the current semester when needed. Materials will not be placed on reserve for more than one semester without obtaining the copyright holder's permission.
All use of materials placed on electronic reserves will be solely at the initiative of faculty and solely for the non-commercial educational usage of students.
Audiovisual materials placed on reserve must be legally acquired in compliance with United States copyright laws. The Library will accept videos and DVDs that are owned by the Tri-college libraries or by members of the College community. Personal copies will be returned at the end of the course.
Book and Video Reserves
In the Fall 2020, the library will not have physical course reserves. Instead, faculty should consult with their subject librarian about how to find appropriate online resources.
IMPORTANT: For e-book titles to be used in your courses, please ask your subject librarian to purchase the e-book. We "rent" and do not "own" most of the e-book titles in Tripod, and unless you request a specific title be purchased, the publisher may remove its availability in a "rent-able" e-version from our vendor. If you wish to put an e-book on reserve that we don't already have in Tripod, contact your subject librarian or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that not all books are available as e-books and not all e-books are available for library use.
