There are three ways for instructors to place items on course reserve.
Staff will retrieve all library-owned materials and place them on reserve. Please note that Watzek is unable to place Summit, ILL, photocopied, or duplicated material on course reserve.
To assure compliance with copyright law, the College urges faculty to use XanEdu when the distribution of readings requires permission from rights holders. XanEdu allows faculty to assemble sets of course materials, obtain copyright permissions from publishers, and create electronic or printed course packs for students to purchase through the College bookstore.

Alternatives to XanEdu
Costs for permissions can be significant. Faculty may want to consider these alternate delivery options for book chapters, articles and other excerpts of copyrighted materials.
Electronic audio reserves can be created for all music courses. Only compact discs owned by Watzek Library and commercially available albums owned by instructors are eligible. Duplicated or “mix” CDs will not be converted for electronic reserve.
To place audio materials on reserve:
Please allow one week for the materials to be posted.
Watzek Library's audio electronic reserves project utilizes the Music Library Association's copyright guidelines.
The Library doesn't own a book my class is reading. Can I put a personal copy on reserve?
Sure! Instructor-owned books, videos, and other materials can be added to reserves. Personal items will circulate to students throughout the semester and may be damaged; we recommend that valuable items not be placed on reserve.
How do I get my personal copy back at the end of the semester?
After the end of the semester, library staff will remove the item from reserve and return it to the listed professor via campus mail. Of course, you are welcome to stop by the Library Service Desk and ask staff to remove the item from reserve at any time.
Will the library purchase a book or movie for course reserves?
In most cases, yes. Please contact your library liaison for assistance.
Can I put a Summit or ILL book on reserve?
We only place items owned by Lewis & Clark and instructors' personal copies on reserve. Please contact your library liaison to request a purchase.
When will my submission be processed?
We take pride in processing reserve requests as quickly as possible. In general, you can expect to see items posted within 24 hours. Please allow extra time at the beginning of the semester when workloads are heaviest. Items that are checked out will be recalled and placed on reserve as soon as they are returned.
