Information: Library Reserve consists of two collection types. The first is a 'traditional' reserve collection of physical items circulated from the Circulation Desk in Odum Library. It includes books, videotapes, DVDs, CDs, book chapters, magazine/journal/newspaper articles, and professor's materials (e.g., class syllabi, lecture notes, homework assignments/solutions, sample tests/papers, etc.), put "on reserve" by Valdosta State University (VSU) instructors or departments. This ensures greater availability to user groups, such as students, in a particular course.
The second collection type is a more recent 'electronic' reserve. Via a course password as assigned and disseminated by the instructor, students can access electronic reserve items through the GIL@VSU Library Catalog Course Reserves 24 hours/day, 7 days/week from any Internet connected computer. Following University System of Georgia Board of Regents' Copyright Policy, the Fair Use Checklist* must be completed and retained by you for each item verifying that all copyrighted materials submitted weigh in favor of fair use guidelines as placed on library electronic reserve or in BlazeView. Electronic reserves must be submitted in electronic file format preferably as a portable document format (.pdf), or other Microsoft file type, or a clean, one-sided article/chapter photocopy ready for scanning. The Fair Use Checklist* is not required when submitting licensed persistent links or personally authored files (as .pdf, .doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, or .xlsx files) of class syllabi, lecture notes, homework assignments/solutions, or sample test/papers.
General Instructions: Fill out below and submit the form. Please submit reserve materials at least 48 hours before your students will require the items. Should you have further questions regarding the processing, the telephone extension is 7082 or visit the Library's website.
