Reserve Policies & Procedure
RESERVE POLICIES & PROCEDURES
TO PLACE ITEMS ON RESERVE: Items must be brought to the circulation desk by faculty or a designated class aid, with written permission.
You will find Reserve information forms at the Circulation desk, which should be filled out in full when submitting items.
Reserve items are processed with magnetic security tape and barcode labels and are added to the library computer database.
Please allow 24 hours for processing Mon-Thurs, except for the first two weeks of each quarter when more time may be needed. Items received after 3 p.m. on Fridays may not be processed until Monday.
Reserve lists are processed in the order we receive them. We will try our best to accommodate emergency requests.
Each program or module is limited to thirty (30) items IN TOTAL, for two reasons: Because of space limitations and to make sure that no section of our collection is removed from circulation.
OPEN RESERVE: Items owned by TESC Library are limited to this collection. Students sign out materials for in-library day use. Open reserve materials may be checked out overnight, one hour before closing and must return the material within one hour of the next opening.
CLOSED RESERVE: Only personally owned items may be put on closed reserve. Students use their library cards to check out reserve items. Closed reserve items do not circulate outside the library.
ELECTRONIC RESERVE: All Items placed on E-reserves must follow the same copyright guidelines as hard-copy reserves. E-reserves are, however, accessible 24 hours via web access, and are not limited to thirty (30) items.
ITEMS THAT CANNOT BE PLACED ON RESERVE:
- Summit Items
- Interlibrary Loan Items
- Photocopies of Entire Books
- More than 20% of a work
- Compilations and Course Packets

In accordance with copyright law (Title 17 US Code) please make certain that all materials are used in accordance with "fair use" agreements.
The following are specifically prohibited by copyright guidelines:

- Copying of "consumable materials (i.e., workbook, exercises and standardized tests);
