Placing Items on Reserve
To place items on reserve in the Music Library, faculty and graduate teaching assistants should complete and submit the appropriate Course Reserve Request Form.  Note that audio and video recordings for all courses should be placed on reserve in the Music Library.
To place audio and video recordings on reserve, complete this form.
To place books and scores on reserve, complete this form.
To place articles and book chapters on reserve, complete this form.
You may submit Course Reserve Request Forms by email, by intra-campus mail (Attn: Rose Loucks, Box 870266), or in person at the Music Library circulation desk.  Please allow one week for materials to be placed on reserve.
Please note that in order to be in compliance with current copyright law, the Music Library cannot accept for reserve non-commercially-acquired recordings.  This includes CDs or DVDs made by the faculty member from commercially-made recordings of any kind, including MP3 files, LPs, and VHS tapes.  There is one exception to this rule.  If the library has ordered a CD or DVD for a faculty member but the recording has not arrived in time for the course, a user-made copy may be substituted until the purchased copy becomes available.  Please plan ahead so that the library will have ample time to provide the recordings you need for your classes.  Also, please remember that recordings of many works are available through the Libraries’ streaming audio databases, including Classical Music Library, Database of Recorded American Music (DRAM), and Naxos Music Library.
