Before submitting an electronic reserves request, you must determine under what circumstances each item can be placed on electronic reserves.

  1. Check to see if the library licenses a database that provides an electronic version by using the Electronic Journal Locator or Library Catalog for a book. If you would like help determining if an item is licensed, please send the citation to
  2. Determine if the item is in the public domain. Books published prior to 1923, and government documents fall into this category. Some items are released under a Creative Commons license - refer to the terms and conditions for course use permission.
  3. Use the Board of Regents Fair Use Checklist to analyze whether your use of the item for the course is fair use. Print and save a copy of the completed checklist for your records.
  4. If none of the above options apply, obtain permission to use the item from the Copyright Clearance Center or from the copyright holder (generally the publisher). Evidence of permission must be submitted to the library with your reserves request.

Materials acquired through GIL Express or Interlibrary Loan cannot be placed on reserve.

You may not submit second generation copies to be placed on physical reserve.
