Course Reserves

Electronic course reserves allow access to readings and other course materials from any computer with Internet access. Bibby Library will place on e-reserve excerpts from copyrighted works in accordance with US Copyright Law and the fair use guidelines.

Guidelines for Faculty Requesting E-Reserves for a Dentistry Course

  • The library staff is available to assist faculty in setting up e-reserves through Blackboard.
  • It is recommended that faculty refer to the University of Rochester's Copyright Clearance and Fair Use web site and complete the UR Fair Use Analysis Worksheet to determine if the use of a copyrighted work meets the criteria for fair use.
  • If copyright permission is required for any materials, the department can obtain this through the Copyright Clearance Center's Academic Permission's Service. The department is also responsible for payment of any fees.
  • Bibby Library reserves the right to refuse to place on electronic course reserves any materials where the nature, scope, or extent of use is beyond the fair use exemption.
