Course Reserves

The Canadian Copyright Act includes education as a purpose in the fair dealing provision. As a result, what is allowed on reserve has changed.

Reserve Procedures

Humber faculty who would like to place items (books, DVDs, Audio CDs) on reserve need to have a library account.

  1. Complete the relevant Reserve Form for each course. The forms are available online or from staff at the circulation desks.
  2. Bring the completed form and items to the circulation desk at least 3 business days in advance of the required date for distribution.
  3. Reserve staff will contact faculty at the end of each semester to inquire if the items are needed for the coming semester.

Guelph-Humber courses: See the details at the Guelph-Humber Course Reserves page.
