Formats of Materials
Traditional reserves are typically used for books, videos, and other audiovisuals.
Materials must be brought to the Connection Center in the Conaton Learning Commons (CLC) accompanied by a form. Print forms are available at the Connection Cente, but they are also available electronically or in interactive PDF.
Please allow 3-5 business days to process traditional reserves requests. At the beginning of each semester additional time may be required and submitting requests early will ensure your requests are processed by the time you need them. The circulation staff processes materials in the order that they are received and we do not have the resources to provide rush service.
Faculty may choose from the following loan periods:
- 3 hours closed (must be used in the CLC or the Library)
- 3 hours open (may be used outside the CLC or the Library)
- 1 day
- 3 days
- 7 days
Materials on traditional reserves will be accessible in XPLORE by professor or course name and available for pick up and check out at the Connection Center in the CLC. A valid Xavier University ID (ALL Card) is required to check out reserve materials.
U.S. Copyright Law and its fair use provisions will be followed by the library in providing electronic reserves. Faculty members are responsible for acquiring all necessary copyright permissions and providing a written copy of permission to the library if needed. The library will not place materials on reserve, and/or will remove materials, if needed copyright permission is not acquired by the faculty member. The library will not be responsible for seeking and managing copyright permissions but some assistance in obtaining copyright permission may be available. The library will not place materials on the electronic reserves system without copyright permission if the nature, scope or extent of copy is judged by the library to exceed the reasonable limits of fair use or is otherwise unsuitable for electronic reserve distribution.
