The Social Work Library provides course reserves services for social work courses.
Every digitization request must be considered in light of fair use. Typically, for course reserves, the scanning of one entire chapter or ten percent of a book will comport with fair use, though slightly more may be appropriate when no digital options are available for purchase or licensing.

Some items may need to be ordered, scanned, recalled, or repaired, which can cause a delay between the time a syllabus is received and the time the material is available for student use. Because of this, syllabi should be submitted as soon as possible to ensure reserves are completed for the first week of classes. Syllabi received close to the beginning of the semester will be worked on in weekly increments until reserves are completed.
Required readings are placed on a course’s reserves list. This includes
Recommended (but not required) readings are not placed on reserve.
Additional requests will be fulfilled under course reserves and copyright guidelines. For example, if faculty want to assign a recommended article, it can be placed on reserve.
Physical items on reserve at the Social Work Library will be removed at the end of each semester unless they are needed for the following semester.
Students should contact the Assistant Dean for Students with Disabilities to obtain textbooks or course readings in a format that is accessible to them. A full list of disability services is available from the Disabilities Services Office.
