KSU Library's Course Reserves service allows instructors to place physical or electronic items on reserve for your class for the duration of the semester.
- Materials may be the instructor’s own copies of books, CD's, DVD's or articles that you drop off or send via .pdf.
- Instructors can also specify items from the collection that we will temporarily relocate to Electronic Reserves for your students.
- Simply fill in the e-form request, which instructors can find below in Submit Reserves - Faculty.
- Once an instructor submits a request and drops off the materials, please allow 5 business days for us to get them ready.
- As soon as the instructor receives an email that the request is completed students will have access to either check items out or view them electronically.
- For Electronic Reserves, faculty will receive an e-reserves course password to give to students to access the reserve materials online.
Kennesaw State University Library System is required to comply with all applicable copyright and intellectual property laws. All KSU faculty, staff, and students are expected to do the same and we will work with you to ensure that all material placed on reserve complies with copyright law. It is the individual responsibility of all faculty, staff, and students to obtain copyright clearance. Please contact the Course Reserves Coordinator for guidance.
