Request Form E-Reserves Reserve Materials U.S. Copyright Compliance
The purpose of the reserve collection in the Neumann Library is to make REQUIRED ADDITIONAL READING available to a class.

Faculty may place UHCL library-owned or personal copies of class readings on reserve at the Circulation Desk. Reserve materials may have a 2-hour, 1-, 3-, or 7-day loan period.

E-reserves: Additionally, we can make your course reserves (journal articles, single book chapters, or class notes) available online for your students through our e-reserves system. If the material is available through our full-text databases, we will create a persistent link to the article. If not, we can also take your digital material (or scan it for you). These passworded documents will be available to your students anywhere they have access to the Internet. Fair use copyright guidelines apply. 

Reserve materials can be identified in the library catalog by either the course rubric and number (example: mgmt 5331) or by the professor's name (example: carter). All copyright restrictions concerning any photocopied material to be placed on reserve are followed.  Reserves Desk Location
