Personal Copies

We are happy to place your personal copies of books and multimedia materials on course reserve.

While we attempt to assure the security of any personal copies of material that you lend us, we cannot guarantee against or assume responsibility for the loss, theft, or mutilation of such copies.

Acceptable Materials

The following will not be accepted as personal copies:

  • Multimedia material that constitutes an illegal recording (made without permission)
  • Unlicensed off-air recordings
  • Rented videos/DVDs
  • Items borrowed from other institutions via Interlibrary Loan or in person 

Return of Personal Copies

If you would like your personal copy to remain on reserve at Snell Library after the end of the current semester, please contact us prior to intersession week to request an extension. Intersession for Summer/Fall 2016 begins August 29, 2016.  

Beginning intersession week, all personal copies left on shelf from the previous semester and not requested for the next semester will be removed and returned to the owner’s department via campus mail. The library is not responsible for items lost in campus mail.
