Course Reserves

 Placing Items on Reserve

  • Bring the material you want placed on reserve to the Music Library, along with a completed and signed copy of the Reserve Request Form (PDF). The general turnaround time for processing of new reserves is 1-2 working days. During high-volume periods (such as the first two weeks of the semester), processing may take a bit longer.
  • To request that sound recordings be placed on electronic sound reserve, use the Reserves Request Form (PDF). Only selections originating on CDs may be placed on electronic sound reserve at this time. Indicate track numbers for the selections desired on the Reserves Request Form. The compact disc for any sound recording requested for electronic sound reserve will also be placed on reserve concurrently with the electronic sound reserve files; this will be done automatically.
  • Personal copies of sound recordings will not be placed on electronic sound reserve.
  • Copyright Questions for Reserve Material.

 Circulation Policy

  • Music Reference and non-circulating materials may only be placed on reserve for a 2-hour in-house use only.
  • Print materials (Books, Scores, Journal Articles, etc.) and media items may be placed on reserve for 2-hour in-house use only, 24-hour checkout, 3-day checkout, or 7-day checkout.
  • Only the instructor who has requested an item for reserve may remove the item for use outside the Music Library. Exceptions may be made with the consent of the instructor.
 

 Removing Items from Reserve

  • All items will be removed from reserve the first working day following the completion of Final Exams for the current semester unless otherwise specified.
  • If you wish to remove an item from your reserve prior to the specified date, contact the Music Library via phone or email to request the removal of items.
  • If in-person pickup of personal copy items has been requested, items will be kept on the hold shelf for one week, unless other arrangements for pickup have been made.
