Copyright Guidelines

The library maintains web pages with copyright information pertinent instructors teaching classes. Instructors are responsible for compliance with copyright and fair use of course materials as well as for adhering to license agreements for library licensed eresources.

Reserve Services Collection

The Reserve collection is a temporary one supporting University teaching programs. Books and media are accessed at the iDesk at your campus’ library. The Reserve collection includes the following types of materials:

  • Books, DVD’s, CD’s and etc. required for scheduled courses
  • Non-course related materials – primarily selected University reports.

In addition, faculty may link to ebooks, chapters of ebooks, video and audio streams, and articles, which students access on-line through HuskyCT. Certain course related materials may also be purchased as Course Packs sold at the UConn Co-op .

Your ID Card

A University ID or a UConn Libraries Borrower ID is required to borrow Reserve materials.

Loan Periods

Reserve materials circulate for one of the following
loan periods:

  • 1 DAY
  • 3 DAYS
  • 7 DAYS

Reserve Lists

Requests for books and DVD’s are submitted by faculty electronically. Reserve staff make every attempt to process lists submitted on time before the start of the semester. Lists received after the start of the semester are placed in a processing queue. Materials are processed out of queue order only under extenuating circumstances. Late lists and incomplete or incorrect information in lists can cause delays in making Reserve materials available to student users.

Ordering New Materials

The Libraries do not purchase materials for course reserves. Instructors are encouraged to draw course materials from the Libraries’ physical or online collections or from the many open education resources now readily available. While the Libraries do not purchase materials that have been published as textbooks or other curricular materials to meet the needs of a particular course, instructors may supply such materials to the course reserve program from their own personal collections.


For most efficient processing please provide complete citations without abbreviations.
