Online Reserve Request System
Teaching faculty only may use this online system to submit Print and/or Electronic Reserves.
Faculty can use EITHER the full Online Reserve Request System above, OR the individual forms below, NOT both.
If both are used, it will cause duplicate requests and slow the reserves process.
Reserve Request Individual Forms (Online and PDF)
All five forms are also available in print format in the Reserve Services office.
A. Course Information, List, and Copyright Forms:
- Course INFORMATION Form (Online | PDF)
This form collects required information about the course including course instructor(s), course name and number, cross-listings, and student enrollment.
- Course LIST Form (Online | PDF)
This form is used for listing physical, print materials (library and/or personal copies of books, maps, DVDs, etc.). Do not include journal articles or book chapters on this form (use the Copyright Request Form, below). Submitting this form along with the materials will expedite processing and availability.
- COPYRIGHT Request Forms (Online | PDF)
These forms are used for journal articles, book chapters, lecture note sets, sample exams, etc. One form must be completed per article. Detailed bibliographic and enrollment information is needed to request copyright permissions from publishers. This is also the place for requesting items to be put on electronic reserve. Reserve Services exercises the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would violate copyright law. For more information, please see the Reserves Policy.
B. Reserve Services Personal Material Responsibility Disclaimer Form (PDF Form Only)
Reserve Services cannot be held responsible or liable for mutilation or theft of instructors' personal materials. Reserves Services takes preventative measures against theft and mutilation of materials placed on reserve, which include barcoding, reserve tapes, and security measures that activate the Library's gate alarm system.
C. Permission for Faculty Use of Student Materials for Reserve (PDF Form Only)
According to Kent State University Policy, students own the copyright to works created as part of their coursework. Faculty using student-created materials for electronic or print Reserve for more than one semester must have this waiver form completed and signed by both student and faculty. Signed waivers will be kept on file in the Reserve Services office. One form per student is required; however, multiple works by one student may be listed on one form.
