Course Reserves is paused for the Fall 2020 semester due to the health and safety concerns associated with handling physical objects.
What alternatives resources do I have for placing books on Reserve at Dana?
Dana library has an enormous number of electronic resources, including e-books, journals, streaming media, anatomy atlases, and more. These resources can replace physical items that would normally be on print Reserve at Dana. All of these materials are searchable using the discovery tool CATQuest on Dana’s home page http://dana.uvm.edu/. Create links to these materials in Blackboard.
How can I make journal articles and book chapters that are only in print format in the library available to students?
Are there copyright issues associated with placing PDFs of print material on Blackboard?
Yes. UVM has produced a written copyright policy.
As a guideline, for a given course in a given semester, use of ten percent of a book with fewer than ten chapters or of a book that is not divided into chapters, or of no more than one chapter or its equivalent from a book of more than ten chapters, for educational instruction purposes is generally considered “fair use”. Inclusion of any greater portions of a book, article or other written work may require obtaining copyright permission.
What do my students need to do to access materials on Blackboard off campus?
See our Connect from Off Campus page for instructions on how to use the proxy server, set up VPN, and other remote access options.
What if I have more questions?
