You may place books, DVDs, videos, CDs, etc. on physical reserve with a link to that reserve list in Moodle. You may also post sound and video clips in Moodle. We are happy to assist you.

Deadlines

Lists are processed in the order received. At the beginning of the semester, allow a minimum of one week to process. Late lists may not be ready when classes begin.

Copyright

We have an Annual Copyright License with the Copyright Clearance Center. Please follow the procedures below to confirm and secure copyright compliance for materials posted in Moodle.

Syllabi

To help students find materials easily, please give call numbers for library items on reserve and note which items are on electronic reserve on your syllabi.

Books, DVDs, Videos & CDs

Using the reserves form, submit a list of complete titles and call numbers for library items for reserves. Library staff will post a link to the specified course listing in Moodle.

Articles and Book Chapters

When posting materials, please make sure that your use of copyrighted material is in compliance with copyright law and college policy. Please see the library's guidelines and step-by-step instructions for posting materials to Moodle for help and more information.

Audio Files

Please send an email to reserves@davidson.edu with a list of the audio files you would like on electronic reserve. Include your name, the course title, and the course number.

For each item:

  1. Ensure that the library owns the item you would like to stream through Moodle. The library will make a good faith effort to purchase the item; if it cannot, the faculty-owned original will be retained for as long as the digital version is available.
  2. Include the title of the item and its complete call number. Include the disc number (if applicable), the track number, and, if a partial track, the timing of the clip.
    For example: CD-1700 v. 5 disc 2, track 4, 0:00 - 1:23.
    (If the library does not own the item, you must provide a faculty-owned original.)
  3. Include any special titling preference.
    For example: "Listening Sample No. 1."
  4. Determine copyright compliance and confirm to the Library in writing that the item is in compliance with copyright law.
    Please note: Davidson College, in consultation with the General Counsel, endorses the Music Library Association's "Statement on the Digital Transmission of Audio Reserves."

See Guidelines for Posting Materials in Moodle for additional course reserve policies.

All reserve items will be made available through Moodle.
