Library Reserves

Students are able to copy materials placed on reserve in the library for their personal use for the purposes of private study, research, education, review, criticism, news reporting, parody or satire. In cases where an entire work (e.g. the whole book) has been placed on reserve rather than just a short excerpt, student should ensure they do not copy more than is allowed under the fair dealing policy.

The Copyright Act requires use for the purposes of criticism, review, and news reporting to always include a full citation to qualify as fair dealing. In order to avoid plagiarism you should always provide a full citation when using others’ work in your own, regardless of your purpose in copying or the type of source.

See the library’s course reserves page for more information on library reserves.
