The Durick Library's course reserve service is for Saint Michael's faculty who wish to place required course materials on reserve for their students. Most often these materials are in high demand by many students for a short period of time, and so must be loaned for only a few hours. Reserves also allow a faculty member to provide students with controlled access to items not in the Library's own collection, such as personal copies. Since circulation records are confidential by law, faculty may not find out who has checked out a reserve item.
Before materials are placed on reserve, their use must adhere to the Saint Michael's College Copyright Policy. The library also uses the American Library Association's Model Policy Concerning College and University Photocopying for Classroom and Library Reserve Use as a guideline for providing reserve services.
