Circulation of Library Materials

Most books and other circulating items in the Reeves Library Collection are loaned to students for a period of one month and to faculty for the current semester. Faculty may borrow DVDs on a two-week loan period; students view DVDs in the library or for overnight checkout after 10 pm.

Library holdings may be searched in the Arthur catalog. Arthur allows you to search our holdings as well as those at William Woods, Lincoln, Columbia, and Stephens, individually or all together. You may also search other Mobius libraries including the University of Missouri Columbia.

For questions about Circulation activities contact Chelsea Tuthill at x5247.

How to

Bring your reserve materials to the Circulation Desk and fill out the "Library Reserve" form or the Moodle E-Reserves form and include your name, course identification, preferred checkout time (e.g. 2 hrs, 4 hrs, overnight, 3-day, etc.) Library Reserve items are kept behind the Circulation Desk and are usually checked out for two hours. Library Reserve materials are generally understood to be for "In Library Use Only," but items posted on Moodle are available 24/7.

Copyright and Reserves

Copyright guidelines can be reviewed at:
Copyright on Campus or the Copyright Advisory Network

A general guide for fair use is that the amount of material copied or scanned should be reasonable in relation to the total amount of the original source. For example, one article from a specific issue of a journal, or a chapter from a book is within the guidelines.

Reeves Library materials and personal copies may be placed on Reserve. The library cannot place on Reserve any books, articles, or videos obtained via interlibrary loan or otherwise borrowed from other libraries. Contact Angela Grogan, at x5245 if additional purchases are needed for your course.

If material is going to be used repeatedly semester after semester copyright permission must be requested. Permission may be requested through the Copyright Clearance Center.
