These guidelines only address the use of copyrighted materials within the e-reserves system.
Assuming Time and Distribution limitations are observed, the following materials may be placed on electronic reserve under Fair Use:
a. Books: One chapter, or up to 10 percent, of a book (provided no other material from the same book has already been used for the same course and same faculty member)
b. Articles: One article from a journal issue (provided that no other articles from the same journal issue have already been used for the same course and faculty member)
c. Poems/Short Works: One poem, short story, or essay from a collected work
d. Other Works: A short excerpt, not to exceed 10 percent, of a work without chapters or articles
e. Illustrations: A chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon or picture from a book, periodical or newspaper
Materials placed on electronic reserve should only constitute a small portion of the required (and/or supplemental) course readings. The ERes system is not intended to replace course-packs.
