Reserve Policies and Procedures
Reserve lists may be submitted at any time for future semesters, and may be designated for more than one semester. Items will be removed from reserve at the end of each semester, unless specified otherwise. Reserve lists should include only required readings in support of classroom instruction. Reserve lists are processed in the order received. If lists are received after the deadline, we cannot guarantee the material will be available by the beginning of the semester. Lists can be submitted via email, fax or in person on an LHS - Chicago Reserve form [PDF] or through the online electronic form.
The Electronic Reserves (ERes) service at the UIC Library of the Health Sciences - Chicago (LHSC) can make course reserves available to students via the Internet. Access is restricted to authorized UIC faculty, students, and staff. Instructors may include notes, articles, and book chapters on electronic reserve. Unlike traditional print reserves, more than one student may access the material at a time. ERes provides fast, easy, and continuous access to reserve materials.
Complete and accurate bibliographic information will facilitate processing. "Type of Reserve Use" should be indicated for all items, and an end date for the list should be specified. The library reserves the right to restrict the circulation of high-demand items, or those on reserve for more than one course. We will make every effort to secure copies of requested items not owned by LHS.
The library can make only one copy per course of each journal article requested. The library cannot copy articles or monograph materials that are more than 50 pages long. Instructors may obtain copyright permission from the publisher and submit multiple photocopies for reserve use. These will be returned at the end of their use period, as the library is prohibited by law from maintaining files of such multiple copies. Instructors may also place personal copies of books, journal articles, old examinations, or other materials on reserve. Such items should be clearly marked with the owner's name, address, and telephone number. The library will protect this material as if it were University property, but it cannot be held responsible for theft or mutilation.
