UCLA Library Copyright Policy on In-Library Reserves
Copyright guidance for course reserves materials received from UCLA faculty and staff.
Campus libraries will place single and/or multiple copies of copyrighted materials received from UCLA instructional faculty and staff on reserve in library units under the following conditions:
Reserve list instructions for faculty and staff include the Reserves Copyright Notice.
In accepting copies for reserves, the UCLA Library assumes that any copies submitted for reserve have been made in compliance with UC Policy and Guidelines on the Reproduction of Copyrighted Materials for Teaching and Research (April 1986)(opens in a new tab).
Library staff will not photocopy materials for instructional faculty or staff to place on reserve.
Library units will, at the end of the period of reserve use, return to instructional faculty or staff all copies of materials that have been placed on reserve. A cover letter reminding faculty of restrictions concerning reuse of photocopied material will be included with all copies returned.
The ASUCLA Bookstore (A-level Ackerman Union, (310) 206-0775) is available to assist faculty with the production of custom course readers(opens in a new tab) containing required reading assignments. The bookstore secures permission to reproduce copyrighted material as necessary, and sells the course reader to students on a cost-recovery basis. Faculty who make the same reading assignments repeatedly are encouraged to utilize this service.
