The mission of the Marvin K. Peterson Library is to support the academic programs of the University by providing information, resources, and a wide range of library services.
This Libguide explains the print and electronic course reserves service available to the University's faculty and the course reserves policy that guides this service.
Upon request, library staff will photocopy and scan material from our collection that is to be placed on print or electronic course reserves. We will also upload files to the course reserves readings for the instructor's course in Blackboard.
Faculty are responsible for evaluating whether the use of a copyrighted work requires permission from the copyright holder or falls under fair use. Library staff can assist you with this process. If copyright permission must be obtained, it is the instructor's responsibility for obtaining copyright permission and for paying any associated fees.
Please visit the yellow tabs at the top of this guide for more detailed information or use the quick links on the right.
The Marvin K. Peterson Library provides course-related reserves services to support teaching and learning activities at the University of New Haven.
Electronic course reserves are accessed via Blackboard; print reserves material may be checked out by students with a current UNH ID from the Library's Information Desk. To view which material is on print reserves in the Library, please use the Course Reserves tab from the Library's catalog. You can search by instructor, department, or course.
We offer a workshop to provide guidance to instructors at the University of New Haven in regards to copyright questions:
