Morisset Library: Reserve policies and guidelines

Faculty can put materials aside at the library for a course. Materials are available to students for short-term use.

Policies and guidelines for faculty

  • To avoid delays, be sure to submit your requests at least a few weeks before the start of classes. We can order items that are not in our collection; however, early notice is essential and we cannot guarantee availability.
  • You can place personal items on reserve (photocopies of journal articles, course notes). Those items will be returned to you at the end the session, unless you give different instructions.
  • Only one photocopy per text per 25 students may be placed on reserve. All copying must be in compliance with the Canadian Copyright Act.
  • All items placed on reserve must be tied to a specific course for a specific academic year.
  • You can place on reserve a maximum of 75 items per course.
  • You can set the loan period. The loan period may be modified if the same item is requested by another professor for a shorter period.
  • You can place audiovisual materials on reserve; contact the Media Resources to make sure a library item is available.
  • The Library is not responsible for the lost or damages to personal items. You can set the fines.

Policies and guidelines for students

  • Use the catalogue to find an item, note the call number and get it at the circulation desk using your student card.
  • You can borrow a maximum of three items at a time. The loan period is set by the professor.
  • An item cannot be renewed or reserved.
  • All Morisset Library reserve items must be returned at the Morisset Library in the return chute at the circulation desk.
  • Reserve fines are $1.00 per hour per item. Fees are doubled ($2.00) when a user refuses to return an overdue item.
