Mikkelsen Library Reserves Policy
Mikkelsen Library’s Reserves Policy assures the use of copyrighted works in compliance with U.S. Copyright Law, Title 17 of the United States Code to protect the intellectual property rights of copyright holders. Due to ongoing changes in technology, course content delivery, and educational practices the library has developed this Copyright Guide to provide assistance in determining copyright compliance.

Traditional Reserves Policies
For films, recorded music, and books, traditional reserves may still be the best option. Personal or library-owned copies of books, videos, DVDs or CDs may be put on reserve. For security reasons, the library will sensitize personal copies, which will not damage the item.
For traditional reserves, the loan periods are: two hours, two hours with overnight check-out, 1 day or 2 days. Items will be removed from reserve at the end of each semester. Faculty must place a reserves request each semester for traditional reserve.
We do not place reference or Interlibrary Loan materials on reserve. Because of space limitations, large numbers of books may not be placed on reserve. Please contact Kadyn Wittman (274.4921 or email@example.com)
Mikkelsen Library uses the following additional guidelines when considering fair use of multimedia:
· Licensing may have already been purchased by the library (e.g. streaming media such as Films on Demand)
· Copying or digitizing, even if covered by fair use, must be done from a copy legally owned by the library or faculty member (e.g. no off-air recordings).
· Restricting the media to only enrolled members of a course as well as prohibiting the download and/or copying of the material.
· Using only those amounts needed to accomplish the teaching objective. In some cases, use of an entire creative work can fall under fair use (e.g. music classes where listening to the entire work is essential).
· When necessary, the library will assist faculty in obtaining copyright permission or arranging the purchase of a license. Any associated fees will be billed to the department.
