If you are placing your own personal books or photocopies on reserve and intend to again in the future, please request that the library purchase a copy of this material for our collection. (This does not pertain to textbooks.)
Photocopied material must have complete bibliographic citations noted on the top page. Photocopied materials that are unorganized and torn may be refused for submission to the reserve room -- be sure all materials are in good condition. Documentation detailing copyright permission or letters requesting copyright permission must accompany materials submitted if you are requesting multiple copies be placed on reserve, you have used this photocopy previous to this semester or wish to put more than a brief amount of copyrighted material on reserve.
Items should be submitted no later than two weeks before the first day of classes. Once the semester has begun, allow at least three days for new items to be processed for reserve.
The reserve room will be emptied at the end of each semester. Library items will be returned to the stacks and personal items should be picked up at the library circulation desk. If you would like to have items remain on reserve for the following semester you must request this via email Reserve@smcvt.edu during the last 30 days of the semester.
Please consult with Mark McAteer ext. 2403, if you have any questions regarding Copyright Law compliance.
