Course Reserves

Procedure

Fill out a Course Reserve form online, or pick up a print copy at the Access Services desk in Library & Media Services, L1003. Bring your published work to the Access Services desk. On this form, you can select the length of the loan period (2 hours, 1 Day, or 3 Day).

If there is an identical copy in the Library collection of the faculty’s copy, it will be pulled from the collection and put on Course Reserve.  It takes 2 to 3 days to process the items.  If the item is faculty-owned, there will be some minor changes made to it like the addition of a book pocket, labeling etc.

Up to 3 copies of an item will be placed on Course Reserve.

No Fanshawe owned periodicals will be put on Course Reserve.  An article can be photocopied and placed on Course Reserve.

See “Fair Dealing – Reserve” information for additional requirements when placing copies of published works on Reserve.

Fair Dealing – Reserves

Reserves allow faculty to distribute materials while following copyright requirements.

Reserves allow for shorter loan periods to enable fair and equal access to high demand materials.

Paper Copies:

One paper copy for each 30 students in a course of instruction up to a maximum of 3 may be made for library reserve, subject to the following:

(a) the paper copies are made by or at the request of a faculty member in respect of a specific course of instruction offered by the ACCC member institution;

(b) the paper copies are made as an optional and supplementary source of information for students and must be a small proportion (no more than 25 percent) of the required reading for a particular course, and the ACCC member institution’s library has received, from the faculty member requesting the copies, a written acknowledgement in paper or electronic form confirming that the copies are intended as an optional and supplementary source of information for students and that the copies amount to no more than 25 per cent of the required reading for the course;

(c) the use of library reserve must not substitute for the purchase of books, course packs or other published materials;

(d) prior to loaning the paper copy to a student, the library has received from the student a written acknowledgement in paper or electronic form that he or she is a student enrolled in a course of instruction at the ACCC member institution, that the student requires the copy for research, private study, review, criticism or news reporting, and that the student will not use the copy for any other purposes;

(e) where the student requires the copy for review, criticism or news reporting, the library advises the student that, in using the copy for any of those purposes, the student mentions:

(ii) if given in the source, the name of the author of the work;

(f) the paper copy is loaned to the student for a period of limited duration;

(g) the paper copy is destroyed within a reasonable time once the course of instruction or series of courses it pertains to comes to an end; and
