Electronic Reserves provide digital access to course materials for students within a specific course. The fair use exception for copyrighted material will be extended whereever possible. For more information and the submission form, visit the Electronic Reserves webpage and/or contact Reserves staff at Reserve_Services@niu.edu.
NOTE: Print reserves are not available at this time.
Copyright law has not changed. Fair Use is defined in Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Law. Please see what the law states: https://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html
Because of the current extraordinary pandemic circumstances, the E-Reserves Unit of the library is willing to change the amount of a work that we will make available for your classes. However, only faculty and instructors can decide whether their use and amount of use would be considered fair: the library and the E-Reserves unit cannot make this determination.
We are asking faculty and instructors to understand their responsibility in making a Fair Use judgment. In addition, please also consider the amount being requested in terms of the current limited staffing at the library.
