To put copyright protected material on the web, specifically for a course web site or educational page, and still claim Fair Use, it is recommended that:
Due to the interpretive variability of Fair Use, the following guidelines were established to aid educators in determining what could safely be considered Fair Use. Although the parameters set below are a good guide to follow when organizing your work, it is important to note that they are only guidelines, and NOT the law. Copyright law is purposely vague to allow for interpretation in a variety of situations.
Reserve requests should be received at least 10 working days (2 weeks) in advance of student needs. During the first few weeks of the semester, processing may be delayed – PLAN AHEAD.
A separate request form is required for each course.
Library staff will retrieve books from the library’s collection – faculty will be notified of any delay.
All items will be available per semester; personal items will be returned at the end of the semester.
If photocopies are being submitted for items not in the library, PLEASE begin each item’s citation with “COPY WILL BE PROVIDED”.
Electronic files may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions must include the information in the online request form, or we cannot guarantee processing. We will accept most of the usual formats (word, excel, powerpoint, etc.)
By submitting this form you are agreeing to abide by the Library Reserve policy and the copyright laws of the United States. Any items that are scanned and uploaded to ERes or Blackboard pages are the responsibility of the instructor.
