The Library offers two options for placing course materials on reserve:
The types of materials that can be placed on reserve vary depending on whether they are for print/physical reserves or electronic/digital reserves.
Print/Physical Reserves are materials that belong to you or the college. They can consist of books, videos, articles, and other materials. Materials on reserve are kept in a special collection behind the Circulation Desk and can only be checked out by students with a valid LSC student ID card.
The following items can be placed on print/physical reserves in the library:
Original copies of college-owned items, not including consumables, may be digitized and distributed with Controlled Digital Lending protections via the library’s electronic reserve system.
Personally owned, gifted, or copied/reproduced items, including examination/review copies, require written permission from the publisher/copyright holder.
Physical print items can be digitized into a read-only copy for your students using Controlled Digital Lending. Faculty will receive a link to the digital item that can be shared with students to access through a free app, MyDocs.
While the item is available digitally, the physical item may not be checked out by students. Only one digital copy may be available at a time for each owned physical copy (example 1 Physical Copy = 1 Digital Copy, 2 Physical Copies = 2 Digital Copies). One student may view a digital item at a time. If the item is not available students may leave an email to be notified when it is available. CDL loan periods are consistent with print loan periods.
