What kinds of materials can be placed in eReserves?

How to submit materials for eReserves:

Please submit materials two weeks prior to the start of the semester in order to ensure immediate access by your students.

The eReserves Request Form must be filled out and submitted with the materials to the Library.

Requests can be submitted online or by printing out this form (PDF, 128KB) and delivering the materials to the Library. Printed copies of the form are also available in the Library, which you may complete when you deliver the materials.

Process

  1. Faculty members turn the course materials to the circulation desk in the library either electronically or walk-in.
  2. Materials that are not already available in electronic format are scanned and converted to Adobe PDF.
  3. Students access the materials via Blackboard by clicking on the Reserves menu choice for each course.

How do I know if what I would like uploaded falls within fair use?

Not sure if your use of a document, link, textbook, book, or video falls within the fair use exception to copyright? Use the CSU Fair Use Factors Checklist (PDF, 59KB) to find out.

How to submit materials for Print Reserves

If you wish to have your textbook/s available for short-term checkout in Print Reserves, please personally or have your department send it/them to the Library Circulation Desk.  A Print Reserve Form (PDF, 133KB) should accompany the materials.

What videos can be streamed and linked to my course?

The Library must own any video that is streamed and linked to any CI courses.  If you would like to have a movie streamed that we do not own, you can request the title be purchased, or if you have an extra copy you could donate it to the library.
