Course Reserve items will stay on Reserve until the end of the current semester. All items will be removed the week after final exams. Please contact the Library if you wish for your items to remain on Course Reserve for a longer period.
Torreyson Library adheres to the UCA General Counsel guidelines for Copyright Compliance, and these guidelines may be viewed at Copyright Compliance.
a) Permission from the copyright holder is required if photocopied material is to be re-used in a subsequent academic term for the same course offered by the same instructor, does not meet “fair use” guidelines, or if the material is a reading for a course taught in multiple sections by many instructors.
b) Materials may be retained in electronic form while permission is being sought or until the next academic term in which the material might be used, but in no event for more than three calendar years, including the year in which the materials are last used.
c) Materials that are available in one of the Library's e-collections (i.e. databases) may not be placed on hardcopy Reserve. As an alternative, please direct students to the persistent web link for the item.
Please note that personal copies may be damaged due to use throughout the semester, and Torreyson Library is not liable for such damage.
Only materials from Torreyson Library or owned by a faculty member or another UCA entity may be placed on reserve. Books, journals and articles procured through Interlibrary Loan from other institutions cannot be placed on reserve.
Any use of that work must be with the express and written permission of the student. According to United States copyright law, the creator of any copyrightable work owns all rights to that work unless they are bona fide employees or have entered into a valid, written and signed agreement transferring those rights to a third party.
Materials not protected by copyright guidelines and which may, therefore, be freely used include:
Fair use permits certain uses for certain purposes, but is not a blanket exemption for educators.
