The library reserve function allows a large number of students access to a few selected materials within a set amount of time. Items placed on class reserve are kept behind the Circulation Desk and are checked out to students for a 2-hour period. An individual can renew an item for an additional 2 hours if no one has placed a hold on the item. Materials must be returned to the Circulation Desk by the end of the two-hour period or a fine will be assessed. A bar-coded UMMC ID badge is required to check materials out for in-house circulation.
It is the responsibility of the library to monitor compliance with the Copyright Guidelines for Class Reserve as detailed in the Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S. Code):
To place an item on reserve, use the class reserve request form. The library must receive materials three days before needed by students to allow for the time needed to process the items.
If you have any questions about the request form or procedures for reserve materials, email Antronette Bell or call (601) 984-1230.
