If you choose to place a personal copy of a particular work on reserve, we will be happy to accommodate your request. The nature of Course Reserves is such that one item may be handled by a large volume of patrons which can result in much damage to a book or photocopy. Also, while we endeavor to track every item to ensure its return, patrons do, on occasion, lose, misplace or damage personal copies. The University Libraries cannot take responsibility for loss or damage to personal copies of materials placed on reserve.
To aid in identification and for circulation purposes, each personal copy of a book or article placed on reserve will have a barcode attached to it. These barcodes will be easy to remove to insure no damage is done on our part For items designated as "Library Use Only", our staff will attach a slip to the cover of the book which will indicate that the item is to remain in the library.
At the end of the academic semester, unless our staff has been notified otherwise, we will return any personal copies to you through campus mail. If you have a large number of items on reserve we then ask that you pick up your personal copies at the Reserve desk. If you will be using any personal copies again or if you feel that the library should own that particular work, please let our staff know and we will order a copy for the library collection.
