A quick guide to electronic and in-house reserves.

Electronic Reserves

Articles and other materials intended for non-commercial educational use by all students in a class may be placed on electronic reserve or in-library reserve at the library. Materials will only be placed on reserves at the request of the faculty member, course instructor or course designer. Requests will be processed in the order of receipt. Regis Library will make every effort to accommodate requests for electronic course reserve and in-library reserve but may need to restrict inclusion of materials for copyright reasons. According to fair use guidelines, reserve readings are meant to supplement course text materials, not supplant them. We will make every effort to process your requests and have materials posted as soon as possible.

Faculty can access electronic reserves and manage their material by logging into e-reserves.

We recommend faculty and staff submit materials, check course availability, and verify course materials at least 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. If material is received once the semester has started, processing time could take up to 1 week, depending on e-reserve volume.

A reserves request must be submitted for each term that the course is taught.  The library will not place items on indefinte e-reserve.  

General copyright rules:

1) Only 10% of a book may be used for electronic reserves.

2) Only one chapter from a book, or one article from a journal issue.
