Fall Course and Textbook Reserves

Course Reserves for Fall

Course reserve readings will be made available in CAMS. There will be no print course reserves, only electronic. Out of an abundance of caution and care, faculty have been asked to submit all course reserves requests for the entire semester before Aug. 14th, 2020.

Textbook Reserves for Fall

The 2-hour in-building reserve of textbooks is a service that the Library will not be able to offer in the Fall. The quarantine period required for books is 4 days between users. Electronic textbook reserves are being explored using the Fall Book List.

Online Drop-in Office Hours starting Sept. 9

Dear Students,

I thought it may be helpful to share and highlight a new library service starting in Fall:  Online, Open, Drop-in Office Hours.

We will start with 3 days of the week during the lunch hour, M, W, and Th.  You can drop in to ask questions about library related matters. Bobi, Carolyn and I will take turns one day of the week each to be available in real time to help.

Copyright Law and Course Reserves (Fall 2020)

Guidelines for LPTS Faculty and Staff  | Fall 2020 Online Learning #COVID19

LPTS is committed to compliance with U.S. copyright law, but understanding how to apply the law in relation to course reserve readings is not always easy. The guidelines presented here are offered to help LPTS faculty and staff comply with the law. The Library cannot offer legal advice about Copyright Law. It is the faculty/instructor of record's responsibility to comply with the copyright laws in the distribution of course materials.

Since almost everything on the Internet is the intellectual property of someone, even if it isn't explicitly stated, here are instructions to help you comply with copyright law while searching for and using images created by others.
