Changes to Electronic Course Reserves

At the end of this academic year, the Library staff will discontinue its electronic course reserves service. Moodle and the increased availability of full text electronic content through library licensed databases have made this service redundant.

The library will continue its copyright management service for Moodle material, ascertaining the need for permission, and paying for it, when use of copyrighted materials exceeds the guidelines of Fair Use. Library staff will continue to provide traditional reserves services, processing library and personal books and CDs, and reprints that are not for electronic access.

The library staff will also continue to serve administrative departments who need to make material available electronically.

During the Spring term, the library staff can assist in scanning documents if department staff is unable to do so. Please consult with your Academic Information Associate if you have questions about uploading material to Moodle.

A letter has been distributed to all faculty and department administrators detailing this plan.

If you have any questions, please call (x6545) or email Janet Sietmann (sietmann@macalester).
