Course Reserve Service Guidelines

To place materials on Reserve, please use our online form. To place personal copies on Course Reserve, please bring the material to the Law Library Circulation Desk.  All Course Reserve materials must conform to the Ross-Blakley Law Library Copyright Guidelines.

Materials eligible for reserve:

Library owned materials
Instructor owned materials
Copyright compliant articles and book excerpts

Materials not eligible for reserve:

Interlibrary loan materials
Items which do not conform to copyright restrictions
Reading 'packets' or course readers


Processing occurs in order of receipt and turnaround time is 24 hours, Monday through Friday. You may check online to verify that your Course Reserve materials have been processed.

Processing of personal copies will include clear tape on the faces and spines of books, reserve tape, barcode labels, call number labels, and a copyright stamp when applicable. The Law Library is not responsible for damage to or loss of personal books, photocopies, or other materials while in use on Course Reserve.

Law Library staff will:

Retrieve materials from the Law Library stacks
Request materials from other ASU Libraries 
Pull and copy articles or book chapters
Link Course Reserve lists to your course Blackboard pages

In addition to being available in hard copy, articles or other unbound material placed on Course Reserve will be made available online as an Electronic Reserve unless otherwise requested by faculty. Electronic Reserves are accessible only by College of Law students, faculty, and staff.

All materials will be removed from Course Reserve at the end of the semester unless otherwise specified. Instructor owned materials will be returned to your law school mailbox.
