When an item has been placed on reserve, it is considered property of the Cardinal Cushing Library; the library is not responsible for any theft or damage of personal items placed on reserve.
Please give the Library 24-hour notice when removing an item from reserve. Otherwise, the items will be on reserve until the date indicated on the reserve form or until the end of each semester.
Cardinal Cushing Library has developed Guidelines for use of Reserves. They are based on the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries (January 2012). Please also refer to: http://www.copyright.gov/title17/
The Library reserves the right to refuse an item for reserve if, in its judgment, acceptance of the item will result in copyright infringement.
The library will not accept the following for reserve without written permission from the copyright owner:
If the above copyright restrictions are not followed, items will not be placed on reserve and will be returned to the faculty member immediately.
Copies of entire entities: “Fair Use” according to copyright allows reproduction of an appropriate amount of a single source that does not impinge upon the rights of the copyright holder. Each calendar year the Library will reproduce up to five articles from a single journal title.
Copies of media: Recorded copies of CD’s, DVDs, or video tapes are strictly prohibited. Only commercial products are accepted for reserve.
Should faculty members want to place on reserve a photocopy of material that exceeds these guidelines, they will need to obtain copyright permission in writing and bring the permission to the Library before the item will be placed on reserve.
Members of the Emmanuel College community are expected to be mindful of the restrictions imposed on them by copyright law and comply with copyright policies and laws. Faculty are encouraged to speak with a librarian for help finding appropriate course materials among our online subscription resources, including more than 2,000 journals.
