Library Reserves Policy


The following policies are in effect for course reserve materials submitted to the IU Southeast Library Reserves desk:

  • Reserves are a means for instructors to make hard-copy media (e.g., books, DVDs) available to their students for short-term checkout: 2-hour, 24-hour, 4-days, or 7-days.
  • Reserves are for a single semester.  If an item is to be retained for the next semester, a new request form needs to be filled out.
  • Requested in-print titles, which are not owned by the IUS Library, will be referred to the appropriate subject liaison for purchase consideration.
  • IU Southeast Library will only place items on reserve that are owned by the library or supplied by the instructor.  Other libraries' books cannot be placed on reserve.  This includes materials from other IU Libraries.
  • Personal copies of books or A/V materials are placed on reserve at the instructor's risk.
  • IU Southeast Library will not accept student papers without a completed permissions form.
  • Only original media materials, or licensed copies with proof of permission, will be accepted for reserves.
