For Fall 2020 the Library’s course reserves service will move into an online, accessible environment to the fullest degree possible, while remaining responsive to instructor needs. In order to support equitable access for students studying remotely and comply with quarantine guidelines for library materials, the course reserves will follow these guidelines:

  1. If items in physical formats are requested, the Library’s course reserves team will make every effort to purchase or license an accessible digital version instead.
  2. If there is no digital version available we will follow the priorities established by the instructor and will digitize course materials to the fullest extent allowed by copyright law.
  3. If neither of the above strategies is successful or there are overriding considerations, the Library will endeavor to make more physical format copies available than usual in order to minimize the checkout delays caused by the quarantine process. 

N.B.: Procedures for Law faculty differ slightly. Law faculty should consult the Law School 2020-2021 Reopening Plan, contact Law Library Liaisons for assistance, and email lawreserves@cornell.edu with requests.
