Are materials that have been placed on the Web for student use. Access to these materials is 24 hours a day and restricted to current Cal State San Marcos registered class students and may not be shared with others.
Are controlled course readings for ready access by Cal State San Marcos students. These traditional materials are in high demand by a large number of students, therefore materials lend for a limited period of time usually 2 hours, 1 day or 3 day loan periods. Traditional Reserve materials are located at the third floor check out desk. Audio/Visual reserve material is located at the second floor check out desk.
To check-out traditional reserve materials the student must have a current Cal State San Marcos identification card with library barcode. A maximum of 2 traditional items per coarse may be checked out to a student at one time. Late fees begin to accumulate immediately if materials are not returned at the specified time or date.
Any media format can be placed on reserve in the Media Library for time periods indicated by faculty. Playback equipment is available in the Media Library for media items placed on reserve.
For electronic reserve: Email document files to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the course and item bibliographic information.
For traditional reserves: Print out the Faculty Reserves Material Form (PDF) and bring it into the library with your materials. It's that easy!
For media reserves: Fill out the web based Faculty Media Reserves Form to place items on reserve in the media library.
Professors choose the check out period. Choices are: 2 hours, 1 day, 3 days, or 1 week.
Reserve materials are added on a first come first served basis. During the first two weeks of each semester it may take several days before the material is ready, but once the beginning rush is over items are usually placed on reserve by the next business day.
All four factors must be considered when following the Fair Use Doctrine (the purpose of the use, the nature of the work, the amount used, and the effect of the use on the potential market) so this is always a difficult question to answer. We are generally safe using one or two chapters / articles of a book or journal. Please look over your materials and carefully consider what would benefit your students.
Traditional reserve items are not limited. Up to 15 copyrighted articles / chapters per course per semester may be placed on electronic reserves. There is no limit to the number of non copyrighted items (exams, lecture notes, solutions, syllabus, etc.)
Yes. Simply email email@example.com with the titles, call numbers, circulation time (2 hours, 1 day, 3 days, or 1 week,) and course information.
No. Only books owned by CSUSM or professor's personal copies may be placed on reserve.
The library's acquisitions department makes all the decisions about book purchases for the library. Please contact Hua Yi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your campus username and password will provide access to your reserve materials.
As long as they are needed. At the end of each semester professors are notified by email when materials will be removed. Reply back if course materials need to be carried over to the next semester.
No. You must decide on which method would benefit your students most.
Only if the bibliographic information is not provided in another way. Bibliographic info can be: written on the photocopy of the article / chapter, a photocopy of the book's title page and verso, or an email with the information.
Yes, email the changes to email@example.com
Yes! Once a course is created and the documents have been added changes are usually very easy to make.
The library does not purchase textbooks. The professor would have to put a personal copy of the textbook on reserve.
