The Cal Maritime Library makes course textbooks and other course materials available to support student learning and equitable access to education.
The loan period for books on Reserve is usually 2 hours, with 1 renewal permitted, subject to staff approval. The loan period for DVDs on Reserve is 4 hours. Due to high demand, all Reserve material must be used within the Library.
Work with Pamela Baird (x1098) to place items on Reserve in the Library.
We can place Library-owned material and/or instructors' copies on Reserve. If you are interested in providing electronic copies of course materials, please contact your liaison librarian to discuss whether your materials are available in electronic format, and other options including scanning, subject to copyright limitations.
While the Library's annual budget does not allow for purchasing copies of all materials assigned to students at Cal Maritime, we are able to purchase some requested items, providing they meet our collection development policy.
Please bring Reserve materials to the Library well in advance of students' needs. Our goal is to process materials immediately. Materials received after 4 PM or on a weekend may not be processed until the next working day.
Please attach a copy of the Reserve form below with each title you place on Reserve. You must sign this document if you are placing photocopies on Reserve. Personal materials placed on Reserve are returned at the end of each academic year.
Please read Copyright Considerations for Instructors below to understand legal guidelines for placing materials on reserve. The library can not place photocopied material on Reserve for consecutive semesters without documented copyright permission (unless you are the copyright holder).
If you require assistance in obtaining copyright approval - or have additional copyright questions - please call or e-mail Mark Stackpole x1092.
